| Share

First name origins & meanings:

  1. Old English: Man of the meadow
  2. English: From a field by a small river

First name variations: Manly, Manning, Manley, Manesfeld, Mans, Mansfeld, Mansfielde

Last name origins & meanings:

  1. English: habitational name from a place in Nottinghamshire. The early forms, from Domesday Book to the early 13th century, show the first element uniformly as Mam-, and it is therefore likely that this was a British hill-name meaning ‘breast’ (compare Manchester), with the later addition of Old English feld ‘pasture’, ‘open country’ (see Field) as the second element. The surname is now widespread throughout Midland and southern England and is also common in Ireland.
  2. Irish: when not an importation of 1, this is an altered form of the Norman name Manville (see Mandeville).
  3. Americanized form of German and Jewish (Ashkenazic) Mansfeld, a habitational name for someone from a place so called in Saxony.
