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.
