The Lieberson family finds its ancestral home that ancient basin that fed the Elbe, Rhine, Wesser, and Danube rivers. In that area, Lieberson evolved as a German nickname for a person known "of a pleasant disposition."
The surname Lieberson was first found in Pomerania, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. The original, literal meaning of "Liebermann" was "one of pleasant disposition," but later came to represent many different branches of a powerful family. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
