About the Erceg surname

ERCEG ~HERCEG

  • ERCEG~
 means: DUKE~

EN?: Herceg - herceg "vojvoda". Titulu hercega dobio je Stipan Vukčić KOSAČA pa je njegova nekadašnja zemlja po tom dobila ime Hercegovina.
 Hercezi su vrlo razgranat rod u zapadnoj Hercegovini i susjednoj Dalmaciji. Njihova je matica u Vrgorskoj krajini, gdje su vrlo brojni. Hercezi se prvi put spominju u sedamnaestom stoljeću. Naime, u vrijeme kandijskog rata kao izbjeglice živjeli su u Podgori Petar, Tadija i Nikola iz Rašćana. Jure i Nikola Hercegović spominju se u kronici fra Pavla Šilobadovića kao istaknuti hajduci u borbi protiv Turaka. Nastali su od starog plemena Jurišića, koji se 1565. godine spominju u Kotezima niže Vrgorca.
U vrijeme popisa Hrvata katolika Bosne i Hercegovine 1742. i 1768. godine, došli su na područje Ljubuškoga, gdje se u starim maticama već 1785. javljaju u više naselja toga kraja. U Klobuku se koncem devetnaestoga stoljeća spominju tri obitelji: Cvitana Hercega, Grge Hercega i Marka Hercega. Za većinu upisa stoji da su iz Šiljevišta, a drugi su iz Klobuka. Samo jedna obitelj je upisana u Osoju. Naime, 1899. kršten je Stipan sin Marka Hercega iz Osoja i Mande Rašić. Prezime je upisivano: Herceg i Erceg.
Godine 1880. kršten je Mijo sin Cvitana Hercega iz Šiljevišta i Mare Mišetić. Cvitan je s Marom imao još četvero djece: Maru, Luku, Anu i Jozu. Nakon Marine smrri Cvitan se oženio Jozom Petrović i dobio dvoje djece: Stojana 1898., i Miju - tu je zapisano da je Cvitan Erceg iz Šiljevišta.
Spominje se obitelj Grge Hercega i Vide Barbarić iz Šiljevišta koja je imala četvero djece: Ivu (1886.), Matu (1890.), Vladimira (1893.) i Marka (1899.). Kod posljednjeg upisa zapisano je da je Grgo Herceg iz Jablanice.

Jure & Nikola

  • HERCEGOVIĆ were mentioned in the chronicle of Brother Pavla ŠILOBADOVIĆA as noted outlaws in the fight against the Turks. Herceg originated from the ancient tribe JURIŠIĆA, which in 1565 was mentioned in Kotezi near Vrgorac. The name was listed in Ljubuski at the time the list of the Catholic Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina was done in 1742 and 1768, where in 1785 the name has appeared in several villages of the region. In the late nineteenth century in Klobuk are three families: Cvitana HERCEG, and Grge Herceg Marko Herceg. Only one family was enrolled in Osoje. In fact, in 1899 Stipan son Marko Herceg from Osoje and Mande Rasić was baptized. Last name is inscribed: Herceg and Erceg. In 1880, the son of Mijo Cvitana Herceg from Šiljevišta and Mare Misetić was baptized. Cvitan with Mara had four more children: Mara, Luka, Ana and Joze. After Marine Cvitan married Jozo Petrović and had two children: Stojan in 1898, and Mija - there is a note that Cvitan Erceg is from Šiljevišta. Also mentioned are the family of Grge Herceg and Vide Barbaric from Šiljevišta who had four children: Iva (1886), Mate (1890), Vladimir (1893) and Marko (1899). In the last entry is written that Grgo Herceg was from Jablanica.

NL: Hertog betekent dat deze familie ooit in hun land van oorsprong een belangrijke plaats in hun domeinen en dorpen wisten te veroveren en dus zorgden voor rust voor hun onderdanen, familieleden en hun personeel.

ERCEG

  • Prezime ERCEG uglavnom nose Hrvati, većim dijelom iz Vrgorca, a prema nekimi izvorima iz Mandaline kraj Šibenika. Rijetko su i Srbi (okolica Zadra). U prošlih sto godina rođeno ih je razmjerno najviše u Slivnu kraj Šibenika, Velikom Prologu kraj Vrgorca i Rašćanama kraj Vrgorca, mjestima u kojima se svaki četvrti stanovnik prezivao Erceg. U Hrvatskoj danas živi oko tri tisuće Ercega u oko sedamstopedeset domaćinstava (124. prezime prema brojnosti). Sredinom prošlog stoljeća bilo ih je približno dvije tisuće, pa se njihov broj do danas gotovo udvostručio.
