Where did the Russian Zobel family come from? What is the Russian Zobel family crest and coat of arms? When did the Zobel family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Zobel family history?The Zobel surname is derived from the Polish word "sobol," which is a type of marten (the English word sable is derived from this source). It is generally considered to be a Jewish (E. Ashkenazic) name. One might expect the name to have been occupational for one who raised martens or worked with their fur, and it is quite likely that anyone in Russia working as a furrier in the era when surnames began to be used could have taken on this occupational name.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Sobol, Sobel, Zobel, Sobolewski, Soboliev and many more.
First found in Russia, where bearers of the name were found in early times.
