An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2017


The Goebel family originated in Bavaria, Germany. As hereditary surnames were adopted in that area beginning in the 12th century, people were often identified by the kind of work they did. Goebel is an occupational name for a maker or dealer of "goblets" or "tankards." Further research revealed that the name is derived from the German noun "gobel," which means "drinking vessel."

Goebel Early Origins



The surname Goebel was first found in Bavaria, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to its emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.

Poverty and religious persecution drove many Bavarians to make this long trek. tenant farmers were also enticed by the prospect of owning land. From east to west, these German immigrants populated the United States, settling in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada also provided homes to many. Early settlers bearing the Goebel surname or a spelling variation of the name include:
