Hi Your posting included the name Kobber.My family also has many males(and at least one female)with this name.One per generation.Is your family from Hjorring County Jutland Denmark?My 1st Kobber is Lars Kobber Hansen and his son Hans Kobber Larsen(my ggranddad)then Martinius Kobber Larsen(my guncle who came to Ontario Canada in 1896)no sons though,but my grandma Camilla Maria Larsen dau of Hans K Larsen had a son Chares Kobber Gilmour and his son was Ronald Kobber Gilmour.My ggrandfather, Hans Kobber Larsen, wa s born 1828 Maarup,Hjorring DK and his mom was Zidsel Marie Simonsdatter.His wife was Sofie Marie Bolund.
There is a legend about the name Kobber but I cannot find it out.my Mom told that it had something to do with strength.
Do you have any info?any connections to the people I have named ?We have a Christian Larsen ,too.In English, Kobber is ''copper''
Like to hear from you
Kathleen O'Flaherty..............how far from Danish does that sound?
