Family name origins & meanings

  • North German (also Rüberg) : presumably a habitational name from a lost place in the vicinity of Rübergerbrücke in Westphalia.
  • Swedish : variant of Rudberg.
  • Perhaps an altered spelling of Dutch Rubberg, a variant of Robberecht, itself a variant of Robert; alternatively perhaps, as Debrabandere suggests, a variant of Rodberg.
