Origins Available: German, Swedish


The surname Lindberg is a local surname, derived from a nearby feature of the physical geography where the original bearer lived. This name is a topographic surname, as opposed to a habitation surname which is derived from an already existing place name. The Lindberg family name is derived from the German word "linde," which means "lime tree," and "berg," which means "hill." The original bearer was named for his proximity near a hill crowned by lime trees.

Lindberg Early Origins



The surname Lindberg was first found in Saxony, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. 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.
