You may have better luck on the surnames board, here:http://surnames.behindthename.com/bb/surThis is my information on it as a surname, easily found through google:A Jewish (Ashkenazic) ornamental name composed of German Freude ‘joy’ + Berg ‘mountain’, ‘hill’.
Also a German habitational surname from any of several places named Freudenberg, from Middle High German vreude ‘joy’ + berc ‘hill’.
