Inman Name Meaning
English: occupational name for a keeper of a lodging house, Middle English innmann, from Old English inn ‘abode’, ‘lodging’ + mann ‘man’. Until recently there was in England a technical distinction between an inn, where lodgings were available as well as alcoholic beverages, and a tavern, which offered only the latter.
