Origin of last name

LOMBARD : 1: French and English: ethnic name for someone from Lombardy in Italy (in France also for someone from other regions in northern Italy; compare Litalien). Lombardy is named for the ancient Germanic tribe which overran the area in the 6th century AD. Their name is attested only in the Latinized form Langobardi but is clearly an ancient Germanic name meaning ‘long beards’. Early immigrants from Lombardy to London were often involved in banking and moneylending and the name came to be used from the 14th century onward as a generic term for a financier. The English surname is also common in Ireland.2: English: from the personal name Lambert (in its variant Lambard).3: Americanized form of Italian Lombardo.
