Germanic name, in which the second element is hramn meaning "raven". The first element is often said to be heim meaning "home" (which would thus make this name a relative of HEIMERAN), but it could also be amal meaning "work, labour" or ermen meaning "whole, universal". Also compare the similar-looking name EMMERICH, where the first element is similarly ambiguous.This name was borne by a saint from the 7th century AD.
