for someone who had recently moved to a location.
The surname Nauman was first found in West Prussia
and Pomerelia, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families in the western region. From the 13th century onwards the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Neumann, Neuman, Newman, Neumanns, Neumans and others.
