Herman Meaning
Means "army man", derived from the Germanic elements hari "army" and man "man". It was introduced to England by the Normans, died out, and was revived in the English-speaking world in the 19th century. It was borne by a 18th-century Russian missionary to Alaska who is venerated as a saint in the Orthodox Church. Another famous bearer was Herman Melville (1819-1891), the author of 'Moby-Dick'. Herman is derived from the Latin name "Arminius", itself derived from the Old Germanic words "heri", which means "army or warrior", and "man", which means "man".
