Uhlman History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Similar to many Austrian family names, the distinguished surname Uhlman is a proud sign of a rich and ancient ancestry. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Austria were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. The surname Uhlman is derived from the Germanic given name Ullrich, which is composed of the elements odal meaning prosperity or fortune, and ric, meaning power.

Early Origins of the Uhlman family


The surname Uhlman was first found in Austria, 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. Chronicles first mention one Ulmann of Glatz in 1372.

German names are characterized by additions such as regional suffixes and phrases that tell something about the origin or background of its original bearer. 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. The recorded spelling variations of Uhlman include Ullmann, Ullman, Ulman, Ulmann, Uhlmann, Uhlman and others.
