The first family to use the name Liebe lived in that part northern and central Europe known today as Germany. It was used as a nickname for a person known as "flatterer" or "smooth talker" as it is in the case of Rudolph qui dicitur (so-named) Lieber who lived in the 13th century, or it could mean "one of pleasant disposition," as in Bernhard Lieb of Wuerttemberg in 1290.

Liebe Early Origins



The surname Liebe was first found in Silesia, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. The literal meaning of the name in its mediaeval context could either be "flatterer" or "smooth talker" as it is in the case of one Rudolph qui dicitur ("so-named") Lieber who lived in the 13th century, or it could mean "one of pleasant disposition," as in Bernhard Lieb of Wuerttemberg in 1290. The name became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries. They were always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.
