Most etymological authorities, such as Reaney's "The origin of English surnames" give Dymond - and its modern variants Dyment, Dimont, Dimond, Diment, Diamant, Diamond,Demant, Deman, Dayman - as being derived from Dayman, both a personal name (1331) and an occupational-name 'herdsman' [i.e. literally, a day man] (1224) in South West England; other variants have included Dieman, Demon & Deymant, with excresent 't' and 'd' endings.

The Dynhams were a totally separate unrelated family.
