Lyman is a male name of several origins without a known specific, including an English topographical name, a German forename, and a Swedish habitational name. It is believed the name was given to someone who lived near a meadow or a patch of arable land. Lyman was a well-known name in the 18th and 19th centuries, with one American author in particular standing out above the rest. Lyman Frank Baum was a children's fantasy writer known for penning The Wonderful Wizard of Oz book series. Twenty years after Lyman passed, the 1939 adaptation of the first Oz book became a landmark of 20th-century cinema. Little Lyman would be thrilled to share a name with the writer of one of the world's most impactful and memorable books.
