The Straub surname is derived from the Old High German "strub, " equivalent to the Latin "strobilus," meaning "unkempt." As such, it was probably originally a nickname for someone who appeared scruffy-haired. Nickname surnames came from eke-names, or added names, that described their initial bearer through reference to a physical characteristic or other attribute.

The surname Straub was first found in the southern provinces of mediaeval Germany, where the name Straub was closely identified in this period with the feudal society that would eventually shape the course of European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches in Southern Bavaria, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs.

One can encounter great variation in the spelling of surnames: in early times, spelling in general, and thus the spelling of names was not yet standardized; and later, spellings would change with branching and movement of families. Variations of the name Straub include Straub, Strube, Struwe, Strufe, Strob, Strauber, Strauble, Strubel, Strobel, Strubing, Struwing and many more.
