The surname Ordemann is derived from the High German word "ort," meaning "high point." The name was likely first borne by someone living at the end of a street or a village.

Ordemann Early Origins



The surname Ordemann was first found in Wertheim, Main, where Orto of Mendfeld is recorded to have been living in 1260. Another early instance of the name dates back to 1271, when Thietrich an dem Orte was recorded as being a resident of Basel.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Sine macula
Motto Translation: Without stain.
