An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016
The origin of the proud surname Gottlieb can be traced to the historic kingdom of Bohemia, which is now part of Czechoslovakia. German surnames developed at a time when most of Bohemia, and most of the German provinces, were states of the Holy Roman Empire. At first people used only a single name, but as the population grew and people began to travel, they began to find it necessary to take on an additional name to differentiate themselves.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Gottlieb, Godlieb, Gottlieber, Gotlieb, Gotlieber, Godlieber, Gotleeb and many more.
First found in Bohemia, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.
