The historic region of Austria is the birthplace of the esteemed surname Ulbrich. The name is derived from "Ulbrich," a personal name of Teutonic origin, popular in various forms throughout Europe during the Middle Ages, meaning "illustrious." The surname was most likely first borne by the son of one called Ulbrich.

Ulbrich Early Origins



The surname Ulbrich was first found in Austria, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation. The name was especially common throughout the Middle Ages owing to the fame of the holy Adalbert of Prague, the archbishop who was martyred in 997 while converting the tribes of Prussia. Albrecht I (1255-1308) was the King of Germany from 1298 to 1308. Albrecht II (1397-1439,) son of Duke Albrecht IV of Austria, was elected German King in 1438, returning the house of Habsburg to the imperial throne after a lapse of 132 years. Albrecht III "the pious" (1401-60) was the much-loved Duke of Bavaria, as was his son, Duke Albrecht IV "the wise." These kings and dukes contributed to the popularity of the name.
