The German states are the glorious birthplace of the distinguished surname Barents. In the medieval era, after the fall of the Roman Empire, the German lands were inhabited by a variety of Barbarian tribes, who fought amongst themselves for control of the land. At this time, the surname Barents emerged throughout the German territories.

The surname Barents was first found in Schleswig-Holstein, where the name Berens emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region.
