    1836 · Remember the Alamo

    Age 0

    Being a monumental event in the Texas Revolution, The Battle of the Alamo was a thirteen-day battle at the Alamo Mission near San Antonio. In the early morning of the final battle, the Mexican Army advanced on the Alamo. Quickly being overrun, the Texian Soldiers quickly withdrew inside the building. The battle has often been overshadowed by events from the Mexican–American War, But the Alamo gradually became known as a national battle site and later named an official Texas State Shrine.

    Name Meaning

    Jewish (Ashkenazic): from an Anglicized form of a metonymic occupational name for a diamond worker, derived from German Diamant, French and Dutch diamant ‘diamond’, or Yiddish dime(n)t, from medieval Latin diamas, genitive diamantis, and ultimately from Greek adamas ‘unconquerable’, genitive adamantos, a reference to the hardness of the stone.

    English: from the rare Middle English female personal name Diamand, derived from Old French diamaunt, diamaund ‘diamond’, found in Middle English as diamound, deamaunt, and deamon. The name may alternatively be a variant of Daymon or a pet form of the Middle English personal name Day , to which the hypocoristic suffix -man has been added.

    Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Diamáin ‘descendant of Diamán’, earlier Díomá or Déamán, a diminutive of Díoma, itself a pet form of Diarmaid (see McDermott ).
