german surname Rippberger
by Damian Vaughn Rippberger
I don't know much about my last name but that it is german a my family going back to the 1600's were from
Eppelheim-Heidelberg, Baden-Wuerttemberg. I believe it was spelled Ripperger at this time. I've also been told that the name comes from Ritter Von Rippberger (Knight of Rippberger 1350)
this is what I've found in addition:
Rippberger was an habitational name for someone from Ripperg near Walldürn (Odenwald) earlier recorded as Ryperg and Rietberg.
There are 62 telephone records existent with this surname, mostly living as you already mentionned in the Neckar-Odenwald region near Heidelberg.
