Youman is a masculine name of Middle English origin. As a variant of Yeoman, one of the earliest documented uses of yeoman refers to “an attendant” or “servant” in an English royal or noble household. But with time, they seem to have occupied higher ranks, working in the Royal Navy and serving as citizen soldiers during the American War of Independence. And with the rise of English Romantic literature, the yeoman outlaws were refashioned into heroes fighting for justice. One of the more famous ones was none other than the man, the myth, the legend, Robin Hood. If you’d like to encourage your little one to assume all roles that come their way with dignity and devotion, Youman will see them climb their way to the top.
