HANSELMAN Family History

This famous surname is of early medieval German origin. It derives from the male given name Hans, itself a nickname or short form of Johann, with the addition of the suffix "mann" or later "man", to indicate friend, kinsman or attendant. Johann is from the Hebrew "Jochanaan", meaning "Jehovah has favoured me (with a son)", and was adopted into Roman (Latin) via the Ancient Greek "Johannes". The name enjoyed enormous popularity in Europe, indeed for most of Christendom it has been the most popular baptismal name.
