Lamont

Lamont comes from a Scottish surname which derives from Old Norse given name Logmaðr meaning “law man” made up from Old Norse log, the plural of lag (law) derived from Old Norse leggja (to lay, to put, to place) from Proto-Germanic *lagjaną (to lay, place) derived from a PIE root word; and maðr (man) which also derives from a PIE root word. Lamont may also have originated as a French surname derived from a place name referring to someone who came from a place called Amont which means “upstream (of a river)” or “uphill (of a mountain)”.
