Meaning for the Name Albert

Albert originates from the Old Germanic name Adalbert (meaning “noble and bright”). The name combined the elements adal (meaning “noble”) and beraht (meaning “radiant” or “bright”).

Following the Norman Conquest of 1066, the French spelling Aubert replaced both the Old English and Old Germanic variations. English speakers eventually adapted the name as Albert. The name underwent a revival during the Victorian period due to the fame of Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. Originally from Germany, he eventually became the consort of Queen Victoria. The symbol of the marriage of Albert and Victoria was the orange blossom.
