The surname Spiegelberg is a local name, derived from the place name Spiegelberg, a small village near Strassberg. The place name is derived from the Latin word "specula," which means "watchtower." The Latin words both have a common root, which means "to see."

Spiegelberg Early Origins



The surname Spiegelberg was first found in Switzerland, 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 of barons from the canton of Thurgau as well as a branch of counts, who settled in the Westphalian region. They had many distinguished branches, and became noted for their involvement in social, economic and political affairs.
