Origins Available: German, Jewish


The German state of Bavaria is the ancestral home of the Lipe family. Nickname surnames, such as Lipe, were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The family name Lipe is a name for a person who is considered holy or intelligent. It stems from a Old German word "Liutberht," meaning "most brilliant or holy, of the people." The endings "-bert," "-bricht," "-pert," "-ke" and "-brecht" are interchangeable in medieval names, depending on the region.

Lipe Early Origins



The surname Lipe was first found in Bavaria, where the ancestors of the bearers of this family name lived from ancient times. The name derives from the older Leiprecht and Leuprecht, which themselves derived from the Old-German word "Liutberht," meaning "shining" or "holy" people. St. Luitpert was a patron saint of farmers in Swabia. The German name endings "-bert," "-bricht," "-pert," "-ke" and "-brecht" were interchangeable in mediaeval names, depending on the region. The first recorded mention found was of Hans Lueprecht of Leutkirch in 1345.

The Great Migration



Between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries, German settlers arrived in North America by the thousands. Persecution based on religion and poverty were great motivators in this large-scale migration. So too was the opportunity for tenant farmers to own their own land. Ample land and opportunity awaited the settlers who went to such states as Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California, as well as Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Lipe or a variant listed above:
