The ancestral home of the Byble family is in the German province of Bavaria. Byble is a German nickname surname. Such names came from eke-names, or added names, that described their initial bearer through reference to a physical characteristic or other attribute. It is a name for a person who was known as hard-working or industrious. The distinguished name Byble is derived from the Old German word beber, which meant beaver. In the Middle Ages, anthropomorphic ideas, which attributed human qualities and form to gods or animals were popular. These associations were reflected in folk tales, mythology, and legends that portrayed animals behaving as humans. Byble is also a local type of surname and there are numerous places named Bieber and Bieberach in several localities in Germany.
