Welsh: relationship name from the personal name Ebenezer , which is of Biblical origin.
In the Bible (I Samuel 4:1, 7:12) it is the name of a place, meaning ‘stone of help’ in Hebrew, where the Israelites were defeated by the Philistines but subsequently achieved vengeance. In the 17th century it was adopted for some reason as a personal name among Nonconformists in Wales, whence its use as a surname.
