The history of the name Farbrodder goes back those Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled over Britain. Such a name was given to a person who was referred to as the fair brother. The surname was originally derived from the relationship between two brothers and referred to the brother of a fair person or the better-looking of a pair of brothers. The surname Farbrodder comes from an ancient Anglo-Saxon word faerbeorht which described a brother-in-law to a famous knight or nobleman. In Scotland, "father-brother" is a phrase to designate an uncle. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Farbrodder Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Farbrodder family name include Fairbrother, Farbrother, Farebrother, Fairbrodder, Farbrodder and many more.
