AskDefine | Define lieberman

Extensive Definition

Lieberman, Liebermann, or Liberman are names deriving from Lieb, a German and Jewish (Ashkenazic) nickname for a pleasant or agreeable person, from the German lieb or Yiddish lib, meaing 'dear, beloved' (Patrick Hanks and Flavia Hodges, A Dictionary of Surnames [Oxford UP, 1988], p. 325). Many Lieberman families originally spelled the name in Hebrew or Cyrillic characters, so variations in the spelling occurred during transliteration to the Latin alphabet.
