If you go to a synagogue, most names that end in man will have two Ns, like my family, which ends in two Ns and is Jewish and is not in Germany because Hitler used two Ns to quickly wipe out Jewish families.
Since you are jewish (or jewish in background?) I should be more inclined to believe you. I’m actually trying to find sources online that say either way, but I can’t find either. If you know of one I’d be really interested because I’ve been trained to think the opposite way all my life.
It is possible that germans have spread this as some sort of anti-semetic thing or to cover up that it was used for that purpose in world war II? I’m not really sure, but Im friends with several german families who say it’s the opposite, like Sternemann, Klarmann and, Zimmermann. And my own family is german and says the opposite as well. I’m not really sure honestly what to believe.
To me it seems very possible that its just random then because both Jews and Germans have a contrasting opinion on this. I’ve never honestly met a German with a single n in my life with the exception of my own family whose n was taken away in the war, but the other relatives unaffected are Klarmann still. I might ask them, but they live in Austria now and my dad isn’t very friendly with them.
I’ve also only met jews with single ns. And I go to a college with an extremely high jewish population. (Stephen goes there too actually)
Actually maybe I’ll post this under the jewish tag and german tag and maybe someone else knows. I’m actually really interested now. xD
