Etymology of the Rudman surname #names


BJ Rudman
 

My great grandfather Zalman Rudman emigrated from Zaslav in what is now Ukraine in 1894. I would like to know the etymology of the Rudman surname. I believe he pronounced it “Roodman”. I have consulted “A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames from the Russian Empire” by Alexander Beider but did not find it very helpful. Any information or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
