Derived from many places named Hirschberg in the states of Thuringia and North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany, or the historic city of Jelenia Góra in southwestern Poland. It is composed of Middle High German hirz meaning "deer, stag" and berg meaning "hill, mountain". In some instances the surname may be topographic, from the same elements. As an ornamental name, it is combined with German Hirsch meaning "deer" and berg meaning "mountain, hill".
