Dearman Name Meaning
English: from a Middle English personal name, Derman (Old English Deormann), meaning either ‘beloved man’ or ‘spirited man’ (from deor ‘wild creature’). See Dear 1. Variant of Irish Dearmond. Probably an Americanized spelling of German Diermann or Thiermann, which derive from short forms of the personal name Dietrich or perhaps from Middle High German tier ‘animal’, ‘game’ + man ‘man’ and thus denote a game or venison dealer.
