The German surname Isenhard is derived from an old personal name, Isenhard. There was a Saint Isenhardus in Bavaria in the 7th century. No doubt the name's roots come ultimately from the Old German word "isen," or "isan," which means "iron" and "hardt," meaning "hard."

Isenhard Early Origins



The surname Isenhard was first found in Pommerania, where the name Isenhard contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation, and would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. Over time, the Isenhard family name branched into other houses, where their influence continued to be felt because of the important role they played in the local social and political affairs. The name Isenhard, like many surnames, most likely began as a nickname, later adopted as a surname by its bearer. It is a combination of the words "eisen," which comes from the Old High German "isan," meaning "iron" and "hardt," meaning "hard."
