The German surname Bluem emerged in the lands that formed the modern state of Lower Saxony, which is presently bordered by the North Sea, the Hartz mountains and the Elbe and Ems Rivers. Lower Saxony was previously a medieval Saxon dukedom. In the Middle Ages, many of the Saxon lands were a part of the Holy Roman Empire, which was characterized by the feudal system.

Bluem Early Origins



The surname Bluem was first found in Lower Saxony, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the Hanover region. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation. From the 14th century the name was associated with a Patrician family that possessed estates in the Calenberg and Minden region.
