Hellbrich History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The roots of the distinguished German surname Hellbrich lie in the former province of Silesia, now part of Poland. The name is derived from the personal name "Hellbrich" or "Helmbrecht," which was made popular during the late 13th century through the Middle High German epic "Meier Helmbrecht" by Wernher der Gärtner in 1250, and means "son of Hellenbrecht." Alternatively, the name may also be derived from "Hembrecht," the name of a part of Frankfurt; in this case, the name would mean "one from Hembrecht."

Early Origins of the Hellbrich family
