The roots of the German surname Siebe can be traced to the Old Germanic word "Siebmacher," meaning "sieve maker." The surname is occupational in origin, and was most likely originally borne by someone who held this position.

Siebe Early Origins



The surname Siebe was first found in the territory of Meissen in eastern Saxony, where the name could be considered to have made an early contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of modern European. The name became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the widespread tribal and national conflicts, with each group seeking power and status in an unstable territorial profile.
