Kamber Name Meaning

German: occupational name for a comb maker, from Middle High German kambe ‘comb’ + -er, agent suffix. Greek: short for Kamberakis, Kamberoglou, Kamberidis, etc., patronymics from kamberis ‘devoted servant’, from a Turkish and Arabic word meaning literally ‘one born in the house of his master’. It may also be a reduced form of Kamberis itself, which is also a Greek surname. Jewish (Ashkenazic): unexplained; perhaps an adoption of the German name.
