OMAN Family HistoryRecorded in the spellings of Oman, Omand and Omond, this is interesting and unusual surname is Scottish. Although not locational, it does originate from the Orkney and Shetland Isles, and in particular the Isle of Yell. It is almost certainly of Norse-Viking pre 10th century origins, as these were areas very much controlled by the Scandanavian invaders of the Dark Ages, and it is claimed, derives from either of two personal names. This may be the compound "Hamundr", composed of the elements "ha", meaning high and "mundr" protection, or from another personal name "Amundr", comprising the elements "a" meaning an ancestor and again "mundr".
