The distinguished surname Koenigsberg is a proud symbol of a Jewish culture, which is found in many places world-wide. In the Middle Ages, it became necessary to adopt surnames, since people were moving closer together, and it was becoming difficult to distinguish between people with the same names. The surname Koenigsberg is a patronymic surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. The surname Koenigsberg comes from a translation of the Yiddish personal names Meylekh and Elemeylekh, which mean king, and God is my king. In most cases, this surname was taken ornamentally, which means that it has an ornamental value and is not necessarily related to the localities, occupations, nicknames or given names of the first person who used the name. However, ornamental names were often derived from elements that described locations or features of geography, animals and birds, occupations or personal names.
