    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: German Kurt, Hans, Otto, Erwin, Fritz, Helmut, Heinz, Manfred, Franz, Gerhard, Johannes, Wolfgang.

    German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): status name for a peasant or nickname meaning ‘neighbor, fellow citizen’, from Middle High German (ge)būr, Middle Low German būr, denoting an occupant of a būr, a small dwelling or building. This word later fell together with Middle High German būwære, an agent noun from Old High German būwan ‘to cultivate’, later also (at first in Low German dialects) ‘to build’. The precise meaning of the Jewish surname, which is of later formation, is unclear. This surname is also found in France (Alsace and Lorraine), the Netherlands, Denmark, Hungary, Poland, Czechia, Slovakia, Croatia, and Slovenia, often as a translation into German of corresponding Slavic status names or surnames.
