Seibert Meaning & Etymology

The German personal name "Seibert" 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). I also suspect 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 sheild 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", "the moon". The color blue depicts "royalty", "peace", "heavenly ascent". An early heraldic motto discovered for the Seibert family name is: "A mountain of strength rising above the sea, unwavering and unyeilding"
