Where did the German Mulkey family come from? What is the German Mulkey family crest and coat of arms? When did the Mulkey family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Mulkey family history?

The origins of the surname Mulkey are rather uncertain; there are several possible derivations stemming from various sources. The Middle High German word "mol(le)" meaning "salamander" is one origin; this interpretation refers to a fat, clumsy person. Another possible source is the Swabian word "molle" meaning "bull, steer," indicating a person who is stubborn. While both of these interpretations are nickname origins, it is also possible that Mulkey is a derivation of Germanic personal names, indicating descent.
