Early Origins of the Kirshenboim family
The surname Kirshenboim was first found in Bavaria
, where the name was closely identified in early medieval times with the feudal
society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs. Coming from the Old High German "kirsa," meaning "cherry" and the suffix "-baum," meaning "tree," the name was probably first given to a man who lived near a cherry tree. It is also possible that the name was occupational
in origin, having been given to someone who gathered cherries for a living.
