Origin of FREEDMAN name #general

Elizabeth Scofield

My ggrandfather Lipman NEINKEN emigrated >from Latvia in 1892 to the
US. His Brooklyn, NY, death certificate lists his mother's (maiden)
name as Rebecca Freedman, born in Russia. FREEDMAN does not appear to
be Latvian in origin. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Thank you.
