The ancient and distinguished German surname Ueber 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."

Ueber Early Origins



The surname Ueber was first found in Swabia, where it is thought to have first emerged. The history of the Ueber family can be traced back to 1409, when the first recorded branch was living in Reutlingen in Swabia. The young Ueber 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.
