The prestigious surname Liebowitz comes from the ancient Jewish culture. This surname is a nickname surname, which comes from the broad category of hereditary surnames. In the Middle Ages, it became necessary to adopt a second name, or surname, because people were moving closer together in towns and cities, and it was becoming difficult to identify people with the same first names. The surname Liebowitz is a nickname, which comes from the Yiddish word lib, which means dear or beloved. It was generally given to someone who was amiable.
