lambrecht History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The roots of the lambrecht family are found in the ancient German state of Bavaria. lambrecht is one of the most common styles of German surname, that of patronymics and matronymics - names derived from the given names of the father or mother of their original bearers. lambrecht is derived from the Old Germanic name Landbehrt, which means shining land or holy land. The name Lambert, with its many regional variations, was popular both as a first and last name throughout the Middle Ages. This was partly owing to the fame of Bishop Lambertus von Maastricht who lived in the 8th century.

Early Origins of the lambrecht family


The surname lambrecht was first found in Franconia, where the name could be considered to make a great early contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of early development of Europe. The name Lambrecht with its many regional variations was much loved both as a first and last name throughout the Middle Ages. This was partly owing to the fame of Bishop Lambertus von Maastricht who lived around 700 AD. The oldest Germanic variation is Land-behrt, meaning literally "shining-land" or "holy-land." The variation Lamprecht especially became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the tribal and national conflicts of the Middle Ages, where each group sought power and status in an ever-changing territorial profile.
