Name Meaning

Some characteristic forenames: Scandinavian Erik, Swen, Thor.

English (Lincolnshire): from the Middle English personal name Ed(e)man, occasionally Ad(e)man (Old English Ēadmann, from ēad ‘prosperity’ + mann ‘man’). Alternatively, a variant of Edmond . In Middle English, Edmund (also occasionally found as Admund) was probably sometimes confused with Edman and Adman, and the resulting surnames were almost certainly interchangeable in post-medieval times.

Swedish: ornamental name composed of the elements ed ‘isthmus’ + man ‘man’.
