The ancient and distinguished German surname Uber is of several possible origins. Firstly, it is derived from the Middle High German word "uober," meaning "active, busy, enterprising." Alternatively, the name may be derived from the name "Huber," which is itself derived from the Old High German "hugu," meaning "thinking spirit."

Uber Early Origins



The surname Uber was first found in Swabia, where it is thought to have first emerged. The history of the Uber family can be traced back to 1409, when the first recorded branch was living in Reutlingen in Swabia. The young Uber family was instrumental during this formative period, figuring prominently in the early history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of medieval Swabian society.
