What does seibert mean?
- Seibert is a surname of German origin. It comes from the German personal name Seibert, which is derived from one of three related "battle names" which were originally spelled Siegfried, Siegbert, and Sigismund; translating as "Victory-Peace", "Victory-Bright", and "Victory-Strength". Seibert, originally spelled Siegbert, means "Victory-Bright", taken from the combination of two root words sigi & berht. Used as a last name it is specifically Ashkenazi Jewish (by adopting the German personal name as a surname) and is often a variant spelling of Seifert which is used as a Jewish acronym for Sefer Torah (Scroll or Scribe of the Torah). The Seibert/Seifert name may have something to do with the kabbalistic Sephirot, as well. The name Seifert, originally spelt Siegfried, translates from the German as sigi-fridu, or "Victory-Peace". The Seibert family shield depicts a background azure, two Stars of David argent in the upper corners, and a chevron argent in the base. Heraldry books describe the six-pointed stars as "emblems of God", and the chevron is a symbol for "those who served under the roof of a house". The heraldic color silver depicts "purity", "sincerity", and "the moon". The colour blue depicts "royalty", "peace", and "heavenly ascent". An early heraldic motto discovered for the Seibert family name is: "A mountain of strength rising above the sea, unwavering and unyeilding."
