Berg Coat of Arms Meaning

The symbols in the Berg family crest and arms are numerous, but three common ones are the mountain, lion, and eagle.

The mount (also known as a hillock) is the area at the base of the shield and when so described is almost always green, and somewhere that another charge is placed, to appear more realistic, or give it a specific relationship to other charges around it. Indeed, unlike like most of the flat, geometric shapes used to divide the field of the shield, the mount may be drawn with tufts of grass and a distinct slope!

There can be no animal more clearly associated with Heraldry than the lion, majestic King of the Beasts. Originally it appeared only in one pose, erect, on one paw, with the others raised but such was the popularity of this figure, and the need to distinguish arms from each other, that it soon came to be shown in an enormous range of forms. The lion rampant is an example of these modified form, and any family would be proud to have such a noble creature displayed on their arms. Rampant is the default attitude of the lion, raised on its hind legs, facing to the dexter and with front paws extended in a fearsome and powerful pose.

Where the lion is undisputed king of the animals, the eagle undoubtedly plays the same role in the realm of the birds, its use in this form dating back to at least the Roman period. They tend to be illustrated in quite some detail, especially in continental European arms, and have almost as wide variety of postures and accessories as the lion, well illustrated in the reference as well as being just the eagle’s head or eagle’s leg. The symbology of the eagle is deep and complex, Wade devotes several pages to the subject, but suffice it say that it has long been associated with Empire and those held in high honour – any armiger would be pleased to have any form of Eagle upon their arms!

Origin, Meaning and Family History of the Berg Name

Surname Name Meaning, Origin, and Etymology
This surname has two origin theories. First, it is a topographic surname for someone who lived by a hill or mountain, deriving from the Middle High German word berc or Old High German word burg, and became common throughout central and eastern Europe. The modern German word berg means mountain. The Lower German variant is barg. Second, in Scandinavia, it is a locational name for a person who lived by a farmstead, deriving from the Old Norse word bjarg meaning hill or mountain. In the Netherlands, which literally means the low lands, some theorize that any who lived on higher land near the mountains or hills was of a more prestigious social class. In Olde English, the word was spelled beorg. The Gothic word was bairhai. With four letters and one syllable, this is one of the shortest names in the Unites States.

Many places in England bear this name, as documented in the Domesday Book of 1086 AD, a survey of England and Wales ordered by William the Conqueror, including Burgh in county Suffolk and Lincolnshire, historically spelled Burch.

Spelling Variations
Common spelling variants include, but are not limited to, Berge, Burg, Burgh, Bergg, Bergh, and Bergge. This word is also in many other surnames, usually Jewish/German, such as Goldberg, Blumberg, Hornberger, Rosenberg, Greenberg, Steinberg, and countless others. The majority of Jews in the western world are Ashkenazi Jews, whose traditional language was Yiddish, which is a Germanic language, hence the term berg in many Jewish last names. Interestingly, many Jews did not adopt surnames formally until The Edict of Tolerance of 1782, issued by Emperor Joseph II of Austria-Hungary, forced them to.

The name also serves as the first part of various German last names: Berghammer, Bergler, Bergner, Bergstrasser, and Beringer, to name a few. In Holland, the name has often been spelled Van Berg, Van der Berg, or Van den Berg, with the suffixes means “of the”.

The similar word borg appears in many Norwegian, Icelandic, Danish, and Swedish last names (ex. Arnbjorg, Eylburg,Almborg) and means stronghold, castle, or fortification. Many of these names were Anglicized or Americanized to berg in the when the families settled in the United States, particularly in the mid west. The name Solberg means “sunny mountain” and Sorberg menas “southern mountain”.

Popularity & Geographic Distribution
The last name ranks 637th in terms of popularity in the United States as of the US Census of 2000. The spelling variants Berge ranks 8,991th.  The name is particularly dense in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North Dakota, likely because the area was settled by German and Scandinavian immigrants in the nineteenth century. The name is also very common in the following countries: Norway (11th), Sweden (18th), Denmark (68th), Germany (90th), and Netherlands (112th).

Early Bearers of the Surname
