An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017

Origins Available: German, Russian


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.

Zobel Early Origins



The surname Zobel was first found in Russia, where bearers of the name were found in early times.
