The German surname Oberer is derived from the German words "ober," meaning "upper," or "above," and the word man.

Oberer Early Origins



The surname Oberer was first found in East Prussia, where the name Oberer came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as numerous branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some of which were located in other countries. Through the acquisition of these estates as well as their important contributions to society, the family successfully elevated their social status.
