Bäbe History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, German


The history of the Bäbe family goes back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from the family living in Suffolk. The surname Bäbe refers to a person who came from Babe, which may refer to an area known as the Hundred of Babegh in the county of Suffolk. The place-name literally means Babba's enclosure. Babba is a personal name meaning protector.

Early Origins of the Bäbe family


The surname Bäbe was first found in Dorset, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D.

Bäbe Spelling Variations


Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Bäbe include Babe, Babb, Babbs, Babbe and others.

Migration of the Bäbe family to the New World and Oceana


Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Bäbe or a variant listed above:
