The surname Gerbert is occupational in nature. Occupational names were derived from the common trades of the medieval era and transcended European cultural and linguistic boundaries. This phenomenon is demonstrated by names such as the German name Schumaker, which means a maker of shoes, the Ashkenazic Jewish name Zimmerman, which means carpenter, and the Polish and Jewish name Stolarski, which means joiner. Similarly, surnames of office, which include military, judicial, papal and other positions of authority, are widespread throughout Europe. Those who were involved in the military, or feudal armies, were given names such as the English Archer and the French Chevalier. Names that were derived from judicial and papal titles, such as Bailiffe, Squire and Abbott, are commonly seen with the same surname spelling today. The name Gerbert is derived from the Old German word "ledargarawo," meaning "leather preparer" which later became "gerwer" and "gerber." Accordingly, the original bearer of this name held the trade of a leather tanner.
