Reply to: What Is the Origin of Bachman? by Joey

Bachman is an alteration of German Bachmann which denotes a man from one of the many places named Bach, the meaning of which is 'stream, brook'. The Jewish name Bachman has the same origin, and the proposed etymology ben chayim 'son of life' is nonsense.
