The Austrian name Ebbers is a patronymic derived from the Germanic personal name Albrecht, which was composed of the elements "adal," meaning "noble" and "berht," meaning "bright" or "famous." Patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, were the earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Austria. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins.

Ebbers Early Origins



The surname Ebbers was first found in Austria, where since early medieval times the name Eberl was closely identified with feudal society's social and political advancements. The name would later emerge as a noble family of great influence with many distinguished branches in the region.

Ebbers Spelling Variations



Many cultural groups lived in the German states in medieval times. Each had its own dialect and traditions, and unique variations of popular names. Low German, which is similar to contemporary Dutch, was spoken in Westphalia. German names are characterized by additions such as regional suffixes and phrases that tell something about the origin or background of its original bearer. Further contributing to the variation in German names was the fact that there were no spelling rules in medieval times: scribes recorded names according to their sound. The recorded spelling variations of Ebbers include Eberl, Eberle, Eberlin, Eberlen, Ebberl, Ebberle, Eberlein, Ebberlein, Ebberlin and many more.

The Great Migration



Austria was made a republic after the First World War. The Austro-Hungarian Empire was broken up by the Treaty of Versailles and many of its people found themselves in the new nation of Czechoslovakia. Many other Austrians and expatriate Austrians made their way to North America in the 20th century. Most landed in Philadelphia, later continuing on to the states of Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, New York, and Maryland. Some Austrian settlers also went to western Canada and Ontario. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Ebbers or a variant listed above:
