Salomon History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: German, Italian, Jewish


The Rhineland, in Germany, is the ancient home of the Salomon family. Traditionally, the German people only used one name, but as the population increased they were forced to adopt hereditary surnames. The most common type of name in Germany was derived from the name of a parent of the bearer. To this class belong patronymic names, derived from the father, and metronymic names, derived from the mother. Salomon comes from the baptismal name Solomon. This name is ultimately derived from the Hebrew given name Shelomo, which is derived from the word shalom, which means peace. This name was popular among both Jews and Christians during the Middle Ages. Among Christians, it was also a nickname type of surname for a person who was considered wise or for a person who played the role of King Solomon in a miracle play.

Early Origins of the Salomon family


The surname Salomon was first found in the Rhineland, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.

Salomon Spelling Variations


In the medieval era, many different cultural groups lived in the German states. There are thus many regional variations of German surnames from that era. Westphalians spoke Low German, which is similar to modern Dutch. Many German names carry suffixes that identify where they came from. Others have phrases attached that identify something about the original bearer. Other variations in German names resulted from the fact that medieval scribes worked without the aid of any spelling rules. The spelling variations of the name Salomon include Salamon, Salomons, Salaman, Salamann, Salomann, Solomon, Soloman, Solomann and many more.

Migration of the Salomon family to the New World and Oceana


The great European flow of migration to North America, which began in the middle of the 17th century and continued into the 20th century, was particularly attractive to those from the Rhineland who wished to escape either poverty or religious persecution. Many of those who left the Rhineland to seek their fortunes in the prosperous and free New World settled in the major urban centers of the United States and Canada. In the United States, the settlers from the Rhineland passed through immigration centers like that of Ellis Island, most of them moving on to Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, and New York. In Canada, the majority of Rhinelanders settled in Ontario and the prairie provinces. An examination of passenger and immigration lists has revealed many important settlers to North America bearing the name Salomon, or one of its variants above:
