Origins Available: English, German


The name Dawber was born in the beautiful region of Bohemia, which is now part of Czechoslavakia. By and large, hereditary surnames were formed in Germany when areas of Bohemia, and most of the German states, were a part of the Holy Roman Empire. At this time, as the population of Europe swelled and travel became easier, people began to encounter others sharing their own name and they avoided confusion by adopting a second name. A common form of surname found in Bohemia are those that are derived from nicknames.

Dawber Early Origins



The surname Dawber was first found in the Kingdom of Bohemia, where the name became noted for its many branches, each house acquiring a status and influence which was enrolled by the princes of the region. In their later history the name became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
