Name Meaning

English: ethnic name for someone from Flanders, from Middle English fleming. The word reflects a Norman French form of Old French flamanc ‘Fleming’, from the stem flam- + the ancient Germanic suffix -ing. In the Middle Ages there was considerable commercial intercourse between England and the Netherlands, particularly in the wool trade, and many Flemish weavers and dyers settled in England. This surname is also common in south and east Scotland and in Ireland, where it is sometimes found in the Gaelicized form Pléamonn.

German: variant of Flemming , cognate with 1 above.
