Name Meaning

English: from the Middle English personal name Osbern, partly from late Old English Ōsbern, an Anglicized form of Old Norse Ásbiǫrn (from áss ‘god’ + biǫrn ‘bear’), but more usually from Norman use of the cognate ancient Germanic Ōsbern. Osbern was often treated as an alternative form of Osbert. For pet forms see Hoskin and Opie . The surname has also been established in Ireland (Waterford, Tipperary) since the mid 16th century.
