Origins Available: German, Jewish


The name Ginsberg is a proud symbol of ancient Jewish culture. Before the late Middle Ages, people were known only by a single name. However, as the population increased and travelers set out on their journeys, it became necessary for people to adopt a second name to identify themselves. Jewish hereditary surnames were adopted from a variety of different sources. The surname Ginsberg is a habitational name, derived from the places named Gunzberg, in Bavaria, Günzburg, in Swabia, or Gintsshprik, which is the Yiddish name for Königsburg, in East Prussia.
