Zub History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Zub is a patronymic surname formed by adding one of the many Russian suffixes, such as "-ov" and "-ovic" to the personal name Zubak, or one of its diminished forms. This name may be derived from the Russian "zub," which means teeth. Perhaps the name was first born by someone having something odd or noticeable about his teeth.

Early Origins of the Zub family


The surname Zub was first found in Russia, where the name was born by members of the Zubov family who were counts of the Holy Roman Empire. Ilia and Afanasii Zubov, descendants of Zakharri, Vice-Regent of Vladimir in 1237, were granted land by Tsar Mikhail Feodorovich in return for demonstrated valor.

The Zub Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Meritis crescunt honores
Motto Translation: Honors increase with merits.
