Last name origin & meaning:
Jewish (Ashkenazic) and German: metonymic occupational name for a
baker, from Middle High German wizbrōt, German
Weissbrot ‘white bread’; compare Weisbecker. White bread
would have been something of a delicacy in the Middle Ages, when
coarse brown bread was the norm. In some instances the Jewish surname
is of ornamental origin.
