The distinguished German surname Hieb comes from the kingdom of Bavaria, and is of two possible origins. Firstly, the name means "son of Hieber or Hildibert," both Germanic personal names derived from the Old High German "hiltja," meaning "battle." Alternatively, the name may be derived from the Middle High German word "huober," meaning "owner of a patch of farmland." The term "Hube" was used to denote a 40-acre hide of farmland. In this case, it is likely that the original bearer of this name was someone who owned such a farm.

Hieb Early Origins



The surname Hieb was first found in various cities in Bavaria, where the name originated. The different origins of the name make it likely that several branches of the family emerged independently during the Middle Ages. The young Hieb family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval Bavarian society.
