Surname meaning for "Hetman"

Polish, German (

), and Jewish (eastern Ashkenazic): from Polish hetman ‘military leader’ (a derivative of German Hauptmann ‘captain’), a status name for a military officer or for the elected leader of a community. In some cases, it may have been given as a nickname. As a Jewish name it is generally ornamental; the literal sense ‘military leader’ never applies.
