Meaning & Origins

From an Old French name of Germanic (Frankish) origin, introduced to Britain by the Normans. It is derived from heri, hari ‘army’ + berht ‘bright, famous’. An Old English form, Herebeorht, existed in England before the Conquest, but was superseded by the Norman form, which gave rise to an important surname. The family in question were earls of Pembroke in the 16th and 17th centuries; they included the poet George Herbert. By the end of the Middle Ages Herbert was little used, although it remained a favourite with some families, notably the Saint Quintins of East Yorkshire. Its greater frequency in Britain from the 19th century onwards is due partly to the trend for the revival of medieval names of Germanic origin and partly to the trend for the transferred use of surnames.
396th in the U.S.
Scottish and English: habitational name from any of the various places so called. A Scottish place of this name near Longniddry is so named because it was held from the 12th century by a Norman family de Sey, from Say in Indre. Other places of this name, for example those in Cumbria, Devon, County Durham, Northumbria, and Yorkshire, are mostly named with Old English sǣ ‘sea’, ‘lake’ + tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. One in Rutland seems to have as its first element a stream name, Sǣge (see Seabrook), or a personal name Sǣga. One in Kent is named with Old English seten ‘plantation’, ‘cultivated land’.
