Meaning & History

Possibly from Slavic ne maniti meaning "not deceiving, not luring, not attracting" [1]. Another theory states that it means "without possessions", derived from Serbo-Croatian nemati meaning "have not". This was the name of a 12th-century Serbian king, and the name of the dynasty he began.
