The ancestral home of the Leibrand surname appears to be Würtemburg, where the name has been found since ancient times. The name derives from "Liutbrand" from "liut," meaning "people," and "brand," which was a flaming sword. The name first became well known through Liutbrand, King of the Lombards (712-744).
