Approximately 300,000 people relocated to California from all over the world during the gold rush years. It is estimated that the mined gold was worth tens of billions in today’s U.S. dollars.

    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: German Kurt, Gerhard, Hans, Heinz, Otto, Dieter, Klaus, Wolfgang, Armin, Manfred, Ernst, Erwin.

    German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): status name for a steward on a farm or estate, from German Hof(f) ‘farm, manor farm, courtyard’ + Mann ‘man’. Originally, this was a status name for a farmer who owned his own land as opposed to holding it by rent or feudal obligation, but the name soon came to denote the manager or steward of a manor farm, in which sense it is frequent also among Jews, since many Jews held managerial positions on non-Jewish estates. This form of the surname is also established in many other parts of Europe, notably in France (Alsace and Lorraine), Poland, Denmark, Hungary, Czechia, and the Netherlands. Compare Hofman , Hofmann , Homann , and Huffman .
