Borrowed from German über-, from Middle High German über-, from Old High German uber-, ubar- (“above, over-”), from Proto-Germanic *ubiri (“over”). Cognate with English over-.
Or, imitating the German, /ˈjuːbə/, /ˈɪuːbə/, /ˈyːbə/.
- (slang) Super; really; mega-.
- And Gisele Bündchen was known as an uber-model, over and above super-models. 
- Uber-fans forget that even a sporting arena is a public place, not the living room; and that in public places certain rules of conduct apply. 
A hyperbolic term, implying extremely, to the point of obsession. May accordingly have pejorative connotations, as in uberdork, ubergeek.
slang: super, really, mega-
