The distinguished surname Probst is German in origin. It is derived from the Low German "pravest" meaning "provost," and is used to designate someone in charge.

Probst Early Origins



The surname Probst was first found in Austria, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. Chronicles of Kromau in 1379 mention one "Hansen, known as Probstel, head-prior of the cloisters." 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.
