As I was told by someone doing research on the Heitmanns in my family, the name originated from describing people who lived in the mountains, or heights; hence mountain or heights men. The Mormans called my sister one day in their research and said that Heitmann with 2 n's indicated Jewish ancestery as well. Hope it helps. Carole
