Lyman is Lehmann?

Surnames: Lyman, Lehmann
Are there any other Lymans out there (probably from New York or Wisconsin) who have found their name actually used to be Lehmann? I always run into Lymans here and in person who are of British descent (which I am not) and so I was just curious as to if anyone else has run into this while researching the name Lyman?

while researching I have found 2 other variations, Liefman and Lieneman. Both of which show England or France as the origination. I believe i read of some Lymans/leeman/leyman in Ireland/Scottland.

I have seen on later 1880 Census, etc. of several Lyman's listed in NY State as being from Ireland.

My grandfather changed Leimann to Lyman. My ancestry is from Prussia and is: Lyman (1850's), Leimann (1760's), Leymann (1730's), Leymand (1650's.
