The surname Eberhart is derived from the given name Eberhard, making this a patronymic surname. Patronymic surnames were a type of hereditary surname, and they arose out of the vernacular and religious given name traditions. The vernacular or regional naming tradition is the oldest and most pervasive type of patronymic surname. According to this custom, names were originally composed of vocabulary elements from the local language. Vernacular names that were derived from ancient Germanic personal names have cognates in most European languages. For example, the court of Charlemagne was Christian and Latin-speaking, but the Frankish dialect of Old German was commonly used for personal names. Vernacular names were also widespread in Germany. As a result, many typical English and French names are of Germanic origin and have cognates in other European languages. Two early examples of the given name Eberhard are Eberhard I and Eberhard II, two successive Dukes of Württemberg.

Eberhart Early Origins



The surname Eberhart was first found in Wuerttemberg, where the name became noted for its many branches with the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name Eberhard was associated with the two dukes of Wuerttemberg, Eberhard I and his brother Eberhard II. In its later history the name became a power unto itself and was elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
