The distinguished surname Heere is Dutch in origin. It is derived from the Dutch word "heer," meaning "gentleman, lord" or "Mr." It is likely that this name was originally bestowed as a nickname on someone who behaved in an aristocratic manner.

Heere Early Origins



The surname Heere was first found in Holland, where the ancestral home of the Heere family is thought to be located. During the Middle Ages, the name was also found in Germany, under the High German variation "Herr." The Heere family was instrumental during its early years, contributing greatly to the development of the society of the Netherlands.
