Name Meaning

German, English, and French: from a personal name composed of the ancient Germanic elements heri, hari ‘army’ + berht ‘bright, famous’. In Britain, this Old French name, introduced by the Normans, reinforced the less common Old English cognate Herebeorht. The surname was taken to Ireland after the Anglo-Norman invasion and in the 16th century.

Jewish (Ashkenazic): from the German personal name (see 1 above).
