given name Litman #general

Herbert Lazerow

One of my male ancestors had Litman as his first name. Could this indeed be a
first name or is it an error in pronounciation
It is a variant of the given name Lipman, >from the German meaning "beloved man".
In my experience with Ukraine, not a terribly common name, and the shortened form
of Lipa occurs most, then Lipman, then Litman. Supposedly another variant is
Liebman, but I have never come across that variant as a given name.
