Origins Available: Dutch-Alt, Dutch, German


The surname Vanberg comes from the Old High German word "berg," which means "mountain." The first bearers of the name no doubt came from a mountain or high ground. The name is often found with the preposition "Van den," which mean "from the." In a low-lying, flat country like the Netherlands any area of higher ground was quite prestigious and as such, this was a popular and prestigious surname.

Vanberg Early Origins



The surname Vanberg was first found in Holland, where it is thought to have existed since the 15th century.
