The surname Wollmann and its many variants are derived from terms relating to the medieval wool industry. The names were inspired by jobs such as cleaning and beating the wool, weaving the wool, and selling the wool.

Wollmann Early Origins



The surname Wollmann was first found in Cologne, where the name Wollemenger was recorded in 1180. Variants of the name, however, sprouted up in many areas of Germany in the 13th and 14th centuries. Gernodus Wolnslehner was residing in the Frankonia region in 1278. Heimisch dictus Wollere was an assessor and resident in Worrstadt, in the Rhine-Hesse area, in 1318. There was a Wollenwiger in Mainz in 1327, a Conrad Woller in Brünn in 1348, a Cuontz Wolenber in 1350 in Stuttgart, and a Conrad Wulleboghe in Hanover in 1367.
