Ortman Early Origins



The surname Ortman was first found in Silesia, where the name emerged after the 14th century, where it was related to the name "Ertmar"; this name is also reflected in the place name Erdmannsdorf, found in both Saxony and Silesia. This family name spread throughout the northern regions of Germany, and Ertwin Erdtmann is mentioned in Osnabrueck chronicles as early as 1509.
