Similar to many French family names, the distinguished surname Aubbrit is a proud sign of a rich and ancient ancestry. 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. As well as the names of the saints of the Christian Church, many of the most common French surnames are derived from personal names of Germanic origin. They derive from the language of the Franks, who controlled France between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries. The name Aubbrit is derived from the Old German given name "Alberic". The name was originally derived from the Latin word "Albericus", which is composed of the Anglicized elements elf and king.
