The Van Norman surname comes from the German word "nordm," meaning "north," along with "man;" that is, it was a name for a person from the North.

Van Norman Early Origins



The surname Van Norman was first found in Hamburg, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs. The family name is also connected to several place names in the Holstein region.
