Multiple Origins for the Surname Silverberg


German


The roots of the distinguished German surname Silverberg lie in the region of Hessen. The name literally means "silver," and was most likely originally borne by a silversmith.

Silverberg Early Origins



The surname Silverberg was first found in Hessen, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name 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. The earliest recorded variant of the name was Silberer, borne by a resident of Esslingen in 1279.
