The appelation HARAMATI appears in the Talmud (Eruvin 45a; Bovo
Kamo 61) with reference to the prophet Samuel (Shmuel) whose family
hailed >from Ramatayim Tsofim (I Samuel 1:1)

As such one cannot read too much in the description of Shmuel as
Shmuel Haramati.

However, it is fair to assume that he was given that title as a sign
of honour for his learning.

Does anyone know what the surname and or appellation HARAMATI refers

Fiorda), son of R' Uri Shraga Feivush, was recorded as HARAMATI in
several instances.
