Amberg History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The prominent surname Amberg originated in France, a country which has been a dominant presence in world affairs for centuries.The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in France were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name.

The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. The surname Lambert is derived from a Germanic personal name composed of the elements "land", which means "land" or "homeland", and "berht", which means "illustrious". [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Early Origins of the Amberg family


The surname Amberg was first found in Dauphiny (French: Dauphiné or Dauphiné Viennois), a former province in southeastern France, where this renowned family held a family seat since ancient times.

By the 12th century, this family was quite important in the Dauphiné and had formed seven branches. Amongst these were the branches of Lambert of Pouget, of Ozon, of Bruyère in Valentinois, of Saint-Christophe in the county of Vaud, Switzerland. Lambert gave its name to La Rochelambert or "Roche of Lambert" and in Velay, Pierre Lambert, Knight, was the Lord of la Rochelambert in 1164. From another branch of this noble family in Languedoc, Raymond and Bernard are mentioned in 1196. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
