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

Eggebrecht Early Origins



The surname Eggebrecht was first found in the North Sea region of Germany, where Eggebrecht 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 Eggebrecht family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval Germany society.
