How Popular Is The Name Kamber

Family name origins & meanings

  • German : occupational name for a comb maker, from Middle High German kambe ‘comb’ + -er, agent suffix.
  • Greek : short for Kamberakis, Kamberoglou, Kamberidis, etc., patronymics from kamberis ‘devoted servant’, from a Turkish and Arabic word meaning literally ‘one born in the house of his master’. It may also be a reduced form of Kamberis itself, which is also a Greek surname.
  • Jewish (Ashkenazic) : unexplained; perhaps an adoption of the German name.
