||Re: Kloman by Sagani
In Germany you will find Kloman, Klomann and Klohmann (not sure about Klohman). They are all rather rare so they're not in my book of German surnames either. "Klomann" is a word for someone cleaning toilets or working there, but this does not explain the name.
All I can think of is either a methathesis of KOHLMANN (coal miner or cabbage farmer) or a variant of GLÜHMANN (with a U umlaut). And there was an 10th/11th century saint from Ireland called Koloman.
