Origins Available: English, German, Portuguese


The German state of Saxony is the glorious birthplace of the distinguished surname Augustine. In the medieval era, the German lands were inhabited by a variety of Barbarian tribes. The ancient dukedom of Saxony derived its name from the Germanic tribe name the Saxons who inhabited the territory after the fall of the Roman Empire.

Augustine Early Origins



The surname Augustine was first found in Silesia, where the name is considered to have made an early contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of early development in Europe. The name became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the savage tribal and national conflicts, each group seeking power and status in an ever-changing territorial profile. The actual origin of the name as it was used in Germany is St. Augustine (354-430,) one of the founders of the Christian church, and it is not surprising that many pious Germans baptized their children with his name; its many variations soon took on the character of a family name as well.

Motto


Expand

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Cominus et eminus
Motto Translation: In close or distant combat.
