Franzman Name Meaning
German (Franzmann) and Jewish (Ashkenazic): from the personal name Franz + man, which later (after 1678, and hence outside the period of surname formation) came to mean ‘Frenchman’. As a Jewish name it can be either an ornamental name or an ethnic name for someone from France. Possibly an altered spelling of Dutch Fransman, an ethnic name for a Frenchman, Middle Dutch fransman.
