How many Leonard Liebmanns are there?
Updated: Dec 22, 2022
We have an innate sense that our names are ours. But are they?
It is possible that more than one person may be named Leonard Liebmann for a number of reasons. One possibility is that Leonard Liebmann is a common name, and it is not uncommon for people to have the same name. Another possibility is that Leonard Liebmann is a name that has been passed down through multiple generations of a family, and multiple family members may have the same name. It is also possible that Leonard Liebmann is a name that has been adopted by multiple people independently of each other. There could be many other reasons why more than one person may be named Leonard Liebmann.
So if you came here looking for Leonard Liebmann, the real question is "Which Leonard Liebmann are you looking for?"
Of course, not every Leonard Liebmann is a Leonard Liebmann. This Leonard Liebmann, for example, is actually a "Lenard Leibmann." Born in 1914, this not-quite Liebmann Liebmann at one time like lived at 201 Henry Street in Brown, Wisconsin. And, oddly enough, he had a sister two years his senior named Ruth Leibmann -- not unlike another Leonard Liebmann born in New York City 63 years later.
A more common alternative spelling of Leonard Liebmann is the one that drops the second "n" -- as is often the case when immigrants from Germany arrive in the United States. One example of the type of Leonard Liebmann is Leonard Liebman, who was born in 1931 and whose residence was registered in the 1940 U.S. census as 1142 Francisco Avenue in Chicago, IL.
It's also quite interesting how the combination of "Leonard" and "Liebmann" can pop up in other permutations. This site announces the wedding of Laura Liebmann and Matthew Leonard. If the bride winds up taking her new husband's name, then she will become Laura Liebmann Leonard -- which makes her (and her children if she should bear any) a sort of morphed Leonard Liebmann.
