    Name Meaning

    Polish, Ukrainian, and Jewish (eastern Ashkenazic): from Polish and Ukrainian hetman ‘military leader’ (a derivative of German Hauptmann; see Hauptmann ), a status name for a military officer or for the elected leader of a community. In many cases, it was applied as a nickname. As a Jewish name it is generally artificial; the literal sense ‘military leader’ never applies. Compare Getman .In some cases possibly also an Americanized form of German Hettmann (see Hettman ), a cognate of 1 above.
