In the process of researching these surnames I have also discovered some of their interesting meanings. One might be surprised to learn that a simple one-letter difference in a name can entirely change its meaning.
- Kamenmakher (Vilna, Troki) O: comb maker [Yiddish].
- Interestingly, kammacher.com is some sort German custom comb making site
- Kanmacher - Carried to Alsace, the name indicates a potter (German Kanne = pot). Alternatives: Kammacher, Kannmacher, Kannemacher.
