The surname Schoenberg is a toponymic local name; it is derived from a feature of the physical geography where the original bearer lived or held land. In this case it is derived from the German words schoene, which means beautiful, and berg, which means hill.

Schoenberg Early Origins



The surname Schoenberg was first found in Saxony, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name, associated with one of the oldest German dynasties, has been traced back to the thirteenth century when they had their ancestral seat at the castle Roth-Schoenberg. They would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs.
