The name is derived from an Old-German personal name, which meant "raven."

Raabe Early Origins



The surname Raabe was first found in Austria, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiance to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power. Chronicles first mention Kunz Rabl of Prague in 1385.
