Last name: Mann

I have married into the Mann family and I am keen to get a crest / coat of arms for the family - can anyone let me know why there are so many to choose from (my maiden name only has one so never realised this problem!) there are three variations (so I can see) - three Goats, three Crowns or three lions on a shield with varying back ground colours red, white/black, yellow. - any suggestions or thought on this would be greatly appreciated.
I live in Cambridgeshire , my family on my dad's side
Originate from Germany and I have ancestors from
The Germanic tribe the angles , but are also related to
The Robert Mann and William Man named above
My name is traced back to Hans Heinrich Mann born 1650/55 Mehlen, Germany. A "Grebe" who owned a "Meierei". (Some kind of farm). His descendants lived at Korbach. G. They were Lutherans. Around 1800 part went to Amsterdam, Holland. Also some went to VS and became Mormons. In Holland also live people with the name Mann who are jewish. And came from Germany.
The mann surname in ireland has developed in different ways.Historically most popular areas for it are in county limerick and county antrim,at opposite ends of the country from each other.The surname in Limerick is of irish origin and is believed to be a derivitive mahon and maughan,old irish names,however the mann name in antrim is of scottish origin
Interesting! this fits with my research. I traced my Mann line back to late 1500s West Yorkshire (Bingley/Baildon Moor area) and they are recorded in that area back to 1300s poll tax records. I had always assumed they had Anglo-Saxon origins but recently had my yDNA tested for ancestry analysis. Turns out that I am descended from indigenous population of the British Isles, probably beaker people that originally settled in Britain and Ireland. Derivation of surname from irish origins (e.g. Mahon) would fit with this story.
I'm from the US and my family name is Mann with earliest known ancestors in North America in coastal Virginia in early 1600's. We're pretty sure they came from England. I had my yDNA tested with results of T1.
Im an Australian "Mann" Great Great Granfather Johann Christian Mann emigrated from Prussia in 1846 - His hometown is now in Poland - so my line is German/Prussian/Polish
We were told my Manns came from Munich to escape persecution. The first one who came was a silversmith. He came to Bradford, Yorkshire, and the family later moved to Mixenden near Halifax. My grandfather told us that all the Manns in Mixenden were related. I assume he made that point as there are other Manns in the area who are not related and who have been here longer. I have searched and searched to find any record of one who came from Germany, let alone Munich, but had no success. Does this ring any bells with anyone?

Mann has many origins.German primarily.A page in the ph.book in Berlin. It is also Russian Jewish,Indian Pjabi,Chinese and a first name in Arabic for a boy.Michels belongs to 4 nations for example and can be Jewish as well.
this definition is nothing short of nonsense! Mann is not an English name, it has Scythian roots, It is a Scythian Jatt tribe of which are spread over all Europe, and Northern India. In the UK Jats or Jutes as the were called in England were heavily in the county of Kent which prior to England being united as a country was known and Jut land. And the people that lived herewere call Jutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT YOU ARE SELLING ISA UTTER NONESENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
does anyone else hate it when people laugh at Ms. Mann
Yes, I get it all the time.
yes everday. the doctor says Mr. mann to my dad and this grown lady laughs at me
Hello, Always lots of interest in my family history an in tracing same we are rooted in Devon, England. I have family names an dates back to the early 16th century, mostly around Kenn, Devon. Noted some of the earlier variation of the name was"Man." Dave Mann
i am tracing the Mann surname ,i have relatives also from the Devon erea,would love to hear from you to compare notes.
Likewise here. Looking to make the connection from coastal Virginia in early 1600's back to England. Would like to hear from either/both of you to compare info.
so if my last names mann does that mean i'm german ?
What a lot of Mann's we have here! I am fairly sure my Mann name is German although as far as I have traced back our routes lie in Britain spanning the south coast of England.
Hello, all! My Mann name is Scottish. Anyone in here related to Manns that settled in South Dakota after they made the big trip to America?

Hi everyone...my group of Manns can trace their ancestory back to the late 1600s to Hans Mann. His son Jerg (George) Bernhart Mann came to Philly, PA with family, eventually the Manns made their way through Lancaster, then down the Shenandoah and into WV (Monroe Co) where many of them reside and enjoy geneology. You can find the history of these Manns online. But, I haven't found any info on Hans Mann other than he was a smith. I wondered whether he or his ancestors may have been of Jewish background. While in the Shenandoah, the Manns were Lutheran and in WV many became and are Primitive Baptists. Any information would be greatly appreciated and some of you might be connected with this group.

alot of Mann were in the military . I know Thomas Mann and his wife Caroline moved with their children to New Zealand in early 1800s on commission assignment and stayed, in Delhi could be a similar situation. Mann has STRONG Native American ancestry from being forced to reservations in Kansas , Arkansas to Oklahoma eventually some chose to stay on reservations and others left to live elsewhere alot stayed close in the south l;ike texas, New Mexico or up in Montana, Dakota territories, the lone Clay tells me that was a Native name. I too am a Mann in Ohio with ancestry as Chief Red Cloud, Leather lips, Thomas Mann was married to a Mahala Red Cloud and Peter Cornstalk Mann was married to a Ounoconoa Moyotoy II both of which had additional wives as well. hope this helps

@Angelica - My maiden name is Mann. My grandpa Mann always said that the name was german scot english in origin (in that order). Oddly enough? His father was a Texas cattle rancher. Wonder if we're kin to Chelsea Bryan? (Great-grandpa's name was Lone Clay Mann, Grandpa's was Olin Clay Mann and my father's was Naylon Cain Mann)
