The distinguished surname Ebright is of Germanic origin. The name means "son of Ebright," and was originally a medieval personal name, derived from the Old Germanic words "agil," meaning "sharp edge," and "berht," meaning "shining."

Ebright Early Origins



The surname Ebright was first found in the North Sea region of Germany, where Ebright was a very popular first name in this region during the early Middle Ages; it is therefore likely that the surname first emerged in this area as well. The young Ebright family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval Germany society.
