Dear Charles Leeman

My family is from Ulster. Most Leemans there are named after the Lamont clan of Scotland but ours appear to have been Rhineland Jews who fled to Ireland around 1640's. Leeman is a common Dutch Jewish name, and comes from Lehmann in Germany (pronounced the same way.

The oldest inscription comes from 7th century BC Ethiopia where LMN was the name of a Sheban king who ruled over a mixed population of sb (shebans) and br (Hebrews.

Best wishes

Dr Bernard Leeman
