The surname Cypert can be found all over the Netherlands. It derives from the word for a common medieval occupation; that of the "kuiper." The "kuiper" was a maker and repairer of wooden vessels, such as barrels, caskets, and tubs. Occupational names belong to the larger category of hereditary surnames, and were adopted by families whose ancestors had performed a certain job.
