Multiple Origins for the Surname Stockman


German


The surname Stockman emerged in the German province of Westphalia, nestled between the Rhine and Wesser rivers. Hereditary surnames that were derived from nicknames were particularly common in this region. Nickname surnames came from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. Stockman is a name for a person who was extremely unyielding. The name Stockman is derived from the German word "stoc," which meant "stubborn." The name was also of local origin and it referred to a person who resided near an unusual tree. In this instance, the name is also derived from the word "stoc," which also referred to the stem or trunk of a tree.

Stockman Early Origins



The surname Stockman was first found in Westphalia and northern Germany, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of this large region. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation. Chronicles first mention Hans op den Stocken of Halver in 1599, and the variation Stoecken is found frequently in Hanover.

Stockman Spelling Variations



Many cultural groups lived in the German states in medieval times. Each had its own dialect and traditions, and unique variations of popular names. Low German, which is similar to contemporary Dutch, was spoken in Westphalia.

Further contributing to the variation in German names was the fact that there were no spelling rules in medieval times: scribes recorded names according to their sound.
