Brushaber Family History
Brushaber Name Meaning
North German (Brüshaber): possibly an occupational name for an oat farmer from Middle Low German haber haver if brüs denoted a particular variety of the plant. However if the first element derives from bross bröss ‘brittle crumbly’ the name would have been a derisive nickname for an oat farmer. The surname Brüshaber is found particularly in the area to the north east of Bremen.
