HERBERT.  "Bright warrior."  The German Herbert is from Heribert (q.v.).  The English form is from Anglo-Saxon Herebeorht (q.v.).  It has been Latinized Herbertus (q.v.).  Usage:  America, Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany, Great Britain, Holland, Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland, Wales.

HERBERT.  A name derived from the Alemannic Heribert, Heribret, Heripreht, O.G. Aribert, which Wachter derives from aer-bert, illustrious in battle.  It might also come from her-bert, illustrious lord.  The nickname is Hab. (Praenomina, Charnock, 1882).

... one of the many Herberts founded a family in Wales, which, in the time of Henry V., was one of the first to follow the advice to use one patronymic instead of the whole pedigree of names.  It is probably owing to the honours in various kinds of the branches of this family that Herbert has of late years become an exceedingly prevalent Christian name in England... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
