Haas History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: German , Jewish


The name Haas 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. Nicknames were used to describe the physical characteristics, attributes, behavior, mannerisms, and even the style of dress of the bearer of the name. The surname Haas comes from the Dutch word haas, which means hare. It may have also been a habitational name, given to someone who lived by a sign which depicted this animal. The surname Haas, is therefore, a Dutch-Jewish family name for someone who was quick, like a hare, or who lived by the sign of the hare.
