OSMENT Family HistoryThis interesting surname, with variant spellings Osman, Osmant, Osment, Osmint, Osmer and Usmar, is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is derived from the Olde English pre 7th Century male personal name "Osmaer", from "oss", meaning god, and "maer", fame; hence, "god-fame". Pre 7th Century Anglo-Saxon, and Norse baptismal names were usually distinctive compounds whose elements were often associated with the Gods of Fire, Water and War, or composed of disparate elements. The names "Osmar" and "Osmer" (without surname) appear in the Domesday Book of 1086, for Leicestershire and Devonshire respectively, but the surname does not appear until the early part of the 13th Century (see below).
