The distinguished surname Oberdieck is German in origin. It is derived from "Oberndorf," the name of several places found in Thürgau, Hessen, and Bavaria, and is made up of two elements: "ober," meaning "up, on top," and "dorf," meaning "village." It is likely that the name was originally borne by someone who hailed from one of the places known as Oberndorf, or, alternatively, by someone who lived at the top of a village.

Oberdieck Early Origins



The surname Oberdieck was first found in Hesse-Nassau, now Wiesbaden, until 1866 a sovereign duchy, is now part of Prussia, where the name emerged in mediaeval 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.
