Eisenhard History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The German surname Eisenhard is derived from an old personal name, Isenhard. There was a Saint Isenhardus in Bavaria in the 7th century. No doubt the name's roots come ultimately from the Old German word "isen," or "isan," which means "iron" and "hardt," meaning "hard."

Early Origins of the Eisenhard family


The surname Eisenhard was first found in Pommerania, where the name Eisenhard contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation, and would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. Over time, the Eisenhard family name branched into other houses, where their influence continued to be felt because of the important role they played in the local social and political affairs. The name Eisenhard, like many surnames, most likely began as a nickname, later adopted as a surname by its bearer. It is a combination of the words "eisen," which comes from the Old High German "isan," meaning "iron" and "hardt," meaning "hard."
