The old German family name Niebur is derived from several possible sources, and no doubt different families of this name emerged independently during the era in which surnames first began to be used. The Low German word 'nabur' meant "neighbor," and then came to be used as a surname. There was also a place named Nabern near Kustrin, a river so named in Wurtemburg, as well as a St. Nabor in the Alsace region.

Niebur Early Origins



The surname Niebur was first found in Prussia, where the name emerged in medieval times as one of the notable families of the region. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
