The Eissenberg surname is a habitational name, taken on from any of the several places so named in Germany. The place names come from the Middle High German "isen," meaning "iron," and "berg," or "mountain."

Eissenberg Early Origins



The surname Eissenberg was first found in Thuringia, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the family became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation. The brothers Ottolf and Otto von Eisenburg lived in this region in the 13th century.
