Origin: Seibert has it's origins as a Germanic Patronymic name. It has 40 some-odd variations in spelling and pronunciation. It's original spelling came from two root words, 'siege' and 'beraht', meaning 'victorious & brilliant one, famous'. These two words combined, create the earliest common form of 'Siegbert'. Before World War I and during the Austrian Monarchy, it 'became' predominitely a 'Jewish' name, and for that reason was eventually avoided by non- Jews. It is often confused with the more common name of 'Siegfried', which means 'victory & peace'. Names such as these are cate- gorized as the 'victory' names, used to depict terms of battle or warfare.... Siegbert: Victory-Bright Siegfried: Victory-Peace Sigismund/Sigmond: Victory- Mountain These names are now commonly depicted as Seibert, Siefert, Simmonds, & Simon.... As a Jewish name, these are possibly descriptive of the tribe of Simeon(Shimon)... commonly the Jews used the 1st sylabble of a German name to depict the tribe they were thought to be from, in this case the Hebrew letter 'Shin'.

Origin: 'Vanderbeck' comes from the Flemish (and Dutch' Van de beek, which means 'living near the small river'. My grandfather (?1899) told me, that the family 'Vandebeek' moved all to the Frenh speaking part of Belgium, where the people couldn't pronounce it right, so it became 'Vanderbeck'. He told me that he was the first generation, coming back to their roots. Probably, it's true. In the French part of Belgium, you'll find much more 'Vanderbeck', here in the Flemish part, it's all family of us.
