Ellenberger History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The distinguished German surname Ellenberger is of several different possible origins. Firstly, the name may be derived from "Ellen," the name of two towns in Germany; in this case, the name might have been initially borne by a native of Ellen who had settled in another city. Alternatively, the name is derived from the Old High German "elina," which refers to a tailor's measure; in this instance, it is likely that the progenitor of the name was a tailor or a cloth merchant. Finally, the name may be derived from the Germanic "aljan," meaning "strength" or "prowess."


Early Origins of the Ellenberger family


The surname Ellenberger was first found in Swabia, where in medieval times the Ellenbach family was closely associated with important social and political advancements of the region's feudal society. The origins of the name make it likely that several branches of the Ellenberger family emerged independently in different regions during the Middle Ages. The first known bearer of the name was Ulrich Ellinson, who was recorded in documents dated 1276. The young Ellenberger family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval German society.
