Origins Available: French, German


The German state of Prussia, which reached the zenith of its power in the late 19th century, is the glorious birthplace of the distinguished surname Barthol. In the medieval era, after the fall of the Roman Empire, the German lands were inhabited by a variety of Barbarian tribes. The borders of the Barbarian kingdoms changed frequently, but the region that became known as Prussia was roughly divided between the areas of Brandenburg-Prussia, West Prussia, and East Prussia. The colorful history of East Prussia, which was located on the southern shore of the Baltic Sea and was bordered by Poland and Lithuania, provides a backdrop to the oldest origins of the Barthol family. The origin of the name is Berthold, the "e" later changing to "a" under the influence of the northern dialects.

Barthol Early Origins



The surname Barthol was first found in the lands that would later form Prussia, where one of the first records of the name was Bertulf (or Bartholf or Barthold) who died in 883, and was the Archbishop of Trier from 869 until his death.

Barthol Spelling Variations



Many cultural groups lived in the German states in medieval times. Each had its own dialect and traditions, and unique variations of popular names. Low German, which is similar to contemporary Dutch, was spoken in Westphalia. German names are characterized by additions such as regional suffixes and phrases that tell something about the origin or background of its original bearer. Further contributing to the variation in German names was the fact that there were no spelling rules in medieval times: scribes recorded names according to their sound. The recorded spelling variations of Barthol include Barthold, Bartholde,Bartholdi, Barthold, Bartholdt, Bartoldi, Berthold, Bartholdy, Bartholdi, Bartholdie, Bartoldy, Bartholdy, Bartolo, Bartheld and many more.
