The roots of the distinguished German surname Blomberg lie in the northern province of Schleswig-Holstein. The name is derived from the Middle Low German "blom," or the German word "blume," meaning "flower;" thus, it was likely originally borne by someone living near a flowering meadow, or was perhaps an occupational name for a gardener or florist.

Blomberg Early Origins



The surname Blomberg was first found in Schleswig-Holstein, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power. The first known bearer of the name was Lüdeke Blome, who was a resident of Hamburg in 1258.
