The Kriebel surname comes from the Middle High German word "krieger," meaning " warrior," or "soldier;" and as such it was an occupational name for a mercenary soldier. However, some instances of this name are no doubt derived from the Middle High German word "kriege," which means "obstinate" or "cantankerous." In this case, Kriebel would have originally been a nickname, which in turn became a hereditary surname when surnames first began to be used.
