Rosenberger - I've heard various things like "castle of the rose" or "person from the town of Rose" or variations on the same.



Hi Fred,

Rosenberger sounds pretty much german to me..

If I'm right I would translate it as "person coming from the mountain of the rose".

castle of the rose would be Rosenburg, the "er" ending can be roughly translated as "someone from"

Steven: Is a Greek name meaning a crown or wreath.
Luke: A couple of meanings here. One is the Greek meaning 'man from Lucania' which is an area in southern Italy. The other is based on the Latin lux which is Light.

So I could be a 'Crown of Light' which is kind of cool. But the reality is Luke probably isn't my family's original last name. On my father's side we can trace the name back to emigration to the US, originating in Germany in the late 18th Century, but no earlier than that. We suspect that the name was changed when the family deported but we don't know what from :-(

Hi Steve,
maybe "Luke" was directly translated from "Lau", wich is a common Family name in Germany.
The name surely has another origin meaningwise, but today the adverb "lau" means "lukewarm".

The last post from Darya got me to do some more checking.

Depending where you look, Rebecca means something different. I don't really trust any of them.

I then posted a question in probably very bad, ungrammatical German to the Lycos website. Someone replied that "According to Heinz," my ancestor named Hopper was a hop-farmer, the hops that are important in brewing beer.

Happy Friday, everyone!

Nach Heintze: Die deutschen Familiennamen ist das auch ein deutscher Nachname und bedeutet, dass der namenslebende Vorfahr Hopfenbauer gewesen ist, d.h., er hat den für das Bierbrauen wichtigen Hopfen angebaut.

Rebecca Hopper wrote:My first name (Rebecca) is in the Old Testament, but I read somewhere that it isn't Hebrew, they think it may be Persian in origin. Nobody knows what it means.



Rebekah was the wife of Isaac, and also his first cousin I think. That also made her the mother of Israel (Jacob). No one knows what it means? A quick Google search show it comes from Hebrew meaning to tie, or to bind.

Gregory (often shortened to Greg or the misspelled Gregg) means vigilant
Charles is probably a shortening of Charlesson, son of Charles. Charles means free man.

Hey, my full name means, "The price of liberty is eternal vigilance"! I never noticed that before.

A bit odd for my, because Tanmoy dhara is not my real name. (and i ask to myself why this name struck my mind, specially the surname,but who knows) any way it means engrossed absorbed.


My real name consists of 3 words.
meaning of the first - Bright, Illuminated (sanskrit & bengali)
second- after a Hindu god
3rd -in bengali it means lion (in sanskrit as well)

can you guess???

Fred Rosenberger -

Rosenborg is a castle in the center of Copenhagen, Denmark, a famous place where many of the Danish kings lived. I've been there a number of times. In the basement they keep the crown jewels (ofcourse heavily guarded), which you can go to see there.

Burgher means someone from a town. Berger mean someone from the mountains. Unless the spelling was altered at some point, I think you should be looking for Rose Mountains.

Wait, what does "Amrit" mean? Well, actually. Google tells me it means nectar (as in the drink of the gods, not the target of bees), but is there more to that? I mean does it figure into Indian mythology? Also, why two different words? Are they from different languages?

Fiorenza is the italian for the feminine name "Florence" (not the city, that's "Firenze"). Both the city and person names come from the latin "florens", "prosper, blossoming".
Oppici I haven't the faintest idea of what stands for.
