Aubert History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The prominent surname Aubert 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. 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 Aubert is derived from the Old German given name Alberic. Looking back even further, we found the name was originally derived from the Latin word Albericus.

Early Origins of the Aubert family

The surname Aubert was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France in the eastern part of France where one can trace this distinguished name since very early times.

This surname is generally believed to be derived from Albert, an ancient baptismal name. The closest gallo-germanic form of the name was found in the name of Aubertus which according to MM A. Bernard and A. Bruel is recorded in the "Recueil des chartres de l'abbaye de Cluny" some time during the year 922. This same spelling surfaced again around the year 1136 in the cartulary of Saint Cyprien of Poitiers. It is believed that the original name was "Athalbertus," which was first noted during the end of the 6th century. [1]

As it is so frequently found during that period, the name keeps on reappearing under different forms and for this particular name we find many variations such as Adalbertus during the 6th century, Aalbertus and Atalbertus during the 10th century.

From its original settlement the family branched to all the different regions of France, and today the name is encountered, in its several variations, depending on the area, in most parts of France.
