Meaning & History

Of debated origin and meaning. Theories include a variant of Alemande, a contraction of Alemandina and a derivation from Middle English almond, almaund and Old French almande "almond" (seeing as almonds were considered "things of value", naming a daughter after them would fit the naming conventions of the time). This name was recorded in England's Jewish and Judeo-Anglo-Norman communities between the 11th and 13th centuries.
