    Name Meaning

    English: ethnic name from Old French germain ‘German’ (from Latin Germanus). This sometimes denoted an actual immigrant from Germany, but was also used to refer to a person who had trade or other connections with German-speaking lands. The Latin word Germanus is of obscure and disputed origin; the most plausible of the etymologies that have been proposed is that the people were originally known as the ‘spear-men’, with ancient Germanic gēr, gār ‘spear’ as the first element.

    Spanish and Hungarian (Germán); English (of Norman origin) and German: from the personal name Spanish and Hungarian Germán, Old French Germain, German German, from Latin Germanus (see Germain ), a Christian saint's name.

    Americanized form of German Germann 1, a name of ancient Germanic origin.
