Man of the way. Wayman is like "way to go, man." Everyone's go-to man, who knows exactly the way, the path, the right thing to do. A man of the road, a traveller, a seeker, a seer. A good man, beloved by all. He can be very funny or very serious and thoughtful, depending on what the situation calls for. A visionary, but a humble one, and capable of great insights and activity.
"You should listen to/follow that guy, he knows what's what, keeps it real; He's a real wayman."
