    Name Meaning

    English, German, and Jewish (Ashkenazic): nickname for a fierce or strong man, or for a man contrasted with a boy, from Middle English, Middle High German man, German Mann ‘man’. In some cases it may have arisen as an occupational name for a servant, from the medieval use of the term to describe a person of inferior social status. The Jewish surname can be artificial.

    English and German: from the ancient Germanic personal name Manno, found in Old English as Mann or Manna. This originated either as a byname or else as a short form of a compound name containing the element man ‘man’, such as Hermann .

    English: habitational name from the Isle of Man.
