The name "Norman" has multiple origins, including English, Irish, Scottish, German, French, Norwegian, Ashkenazi Jewish, and Jewish American. As a given name, it is mostly of English origin and is a Germanic name composed of the elements "nord" (north) and "man" (man). The name was used in England before the Norman Invasion of 1066 but gained popularity after the invasion by Norman settlers. The Normans were a population arising in the medieval Duchy of Normandy from the intermingling between Norse Viking settlers and indigenous West Franks and Bretons. They were originally pagan barbarian pirates from Denmark, Norway, and Iceland who began to make destructive plundering raids on European coastal settlements in the early Middle Ages. The name "Norman" comes from the Old Germanic byname "Northman," referring to the Scandinavians who settled in the region of Normandy in northern France.
