Multiple Origins for the Surname Abele


German


The surname Abele is a patronymic name, derived from the Old German personal name Abel, which means "noble one." Interestingly, it does not appear to be derived from the biblical name Abel. The surname is associated with Swabia, in the southwest of Germany.

Abele Early Origins



The surname Abele was first found in Wuerttembeg, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that south-western region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.
