Origin, Meaning, Family History and Lutman Coat of Arms and Family Crest

Lutman Origin:


Origins of Lutman:

It is a very rare spelling form of the Olde English pre 10th Century "leof-mann" (loveman), which also appeared in the forms of Luffman, Ludman(n), Lutman, Le(m)mon, Ludeman, Luttman, and Lofman, the spelling being generally adapted to the popular local language. In this situation, the initial recording would seem to be of the 18th Century, and in the Hampshire area. This region is popular not only for the richness of the local language, but for the following exchange of letters, between b, v, and f. The name as Lufman or Luffman is famous in the Portsea area, from which "Lubman" would also seem to appear. The name "Lub" did not appear in the etymology of English names, and while it is possibly a theft of the German "Lob" or "Loeb," this seems very strange. There is no proof of any German emigration. As a derivative of "Leofmann," the name was originally a general form of attachment similar to "sweetheart" or "beloved." The initial recording in the "modern" spelling may be John Lubman of Portsea, Hampshire, an observer at his son, Charles', christening, in July in the year 1801.


More common variations are: Luttman, Luteman, Lautman, Lutmann, Ludtman, Lyutman, Loutman, Leutman, Luttmann, Lautmann.


The surname Lutman first appeared in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Kings of the Estate. The Saxon impact of English history declined after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman atmosphere controlled. But Saxon surnames remained and the family name first mentioned in the year 1379 when Richard Lilyman held lands.

The very first recording spelling of the family was shown to be that of Elijas Loveman, dated about the year 1272, in the "Hundred Rolls of Yorkshire." It was during the time of King Edward I, who was known to be the “The Hammer of the Scots," dated 1272-1307. The origin of surnames during this period became a necessity with the introduction of personal taxation.


Many of the people with surname Lutman had moved to Ireland during the 17th century.

Lutman Coat of Arms Meaning

The main device (symbol) in the Lutman blazon is the lion rampant. The two main tinctures (colors) are azure and or.

Azure is the heraldic colour blue, usually quite a deep, dark shade of the colour (there is a lighter blue that sometimes occurs, known as celestial azure). If colour printing is not available then it can be represented by closely spaced horizontal lines in a scheme known as “hatching” 1. The word is thought to originate from the Arabic lazura and it represents the colour of the eastern sky. It is also said to be the colour associated by the Catholic Church with the Virgin Mary and hence of particular significance 2.

Or is the heraldic metal Gold, often shown as a bold, bright yellow colour. It is said to show “Generosity and elevation of the mind” 3. Later heralds, of a more poetic nature liked to refer to it as Topaz, after the gemstone, and, for obvious reasons associated it with the Sun 4. In drawings without colour it is usually represented by many small dots, or by the letter ‘O’ 5.

There can be no animal more clearly associated with Heraldry than the lion, majestic King of the Beasts. Originally it appeared only in one pose, erect, on one paw, with the others raised 6 but such was the popularity of this figure, and the need to distinguish arms from each other, that it soon came to be shown in an enormous range of forms 7. The lion rampant is an example of these modified form, and any family would be proud to have such a noble creature displayed on their arms. Rampant is the default attitude of the lion, raised on its hind legs, facing to the dexter and with front paws extended in a fearsome and powerful pose.
