Ander History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancestral home of the Ander family lies in the East German region of Silesia. The surname Ander is derived from the Greek personal name "Andreas," meaning "manly," and indicates "a son of Anders."


Early Origins of the Ander family


The surname Ander was first found in Silesia, where the name gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society. Moving north the name was also recorded with estates in Denmark where they were a family of note.
