Origins Available: English, German


The German state of Bavaria is the ancestral home of the Lippert family. Nickname surnames, such as Lippert, 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 Lippert 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.

Lippert Early Origins



The surname Lippert 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



The great European flow of migration to North America, which began in the middle of the 17th century and continued into the 20th century, was particularly attractive to those from Bavaria who wished to escape either poverty or religious persecution. For many Bavarian tenant farmers, the chance to own their own land was a major incentive. So the widespread colonization of the United States began in 1650, when many immigrants from Germany settled in pockets in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. In Canada, German settlement centered in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Among those of this surname listed in various historical records were:
