The Vonbreugel surname is thought to derive from the Middle High German word "brogen," meaning " to brag;" as such it was probably originally a nickname, which later evolved into a surname.

Vonbreugel Early Origins



The surname Vonbreugel was first found in Westphalia, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families in the western region. From the 13th century onwards the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
