The distinguished and ancient German surname Brumbagh is of two possible origins. Firstly, the name is derived from towns of the same name, located in various regions of Germany. Alternatively, the name may be derived from "in der Brumbach," the name of a farm located near Müsen, Germany. In each case, the progenitor of the name would have been someone who hailed from one of these locations.

Brumbagh Early Origins



The surname Brumbagh was first found in Swabia and Switzerland, where the name probably first emerged in the town of Brombach. It was a common practice of the time to refer to a new resident of a city by the name of his hometown; thus, the first bearer of the name Brumbagh was likely a native of Brombach who had settled in a new city. The young Brumbagh family was instrumental during this formative period, figuring prominently in the history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of medieval Swabian society.
