Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Neyman include Neame, Neeme, Neam, Neem, Neme, Name and others.

First found in Lincolnshire where one of the first records of the name was Richard le Naim who was listed in the Pipe Rolls of that shire (1170-1178.) A few years later, John Nepos, le Neim was listed in the Curia Regis Rolls for Surrey in 1214. In Worcestershire, John le Neim (c. 1280) and John le Naym (1327) were listed in the Subsidy Rolls. Year later, John Naym was listed in the Inquisitions and Assessments relating to Feudal Aids in 1431. [1] The name was also traditionally known as a nickname having derived from the Old English word "neme" which meant "uncle." [2]

Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Neyman were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
