The surname Bantzel is a patronymic name, derived from the Germanic personal name Bertold. The name Bertold is derived from the Old German words beraht, which means glowing, and told, which means ruler. The personal name therefore means "glowing ruler" and thus surname Bantzel means "son of the glowing ruler." Patronymic surnames arose from the vernacular and religious given name traditions. The vernacular or regional naming tradition is the oldest and most pervasive type of patronymic surname. According to this custom, names were originally composed of vocabulary elements from the local language. Vernacular names that were derived from ancient Germanic personal names have cognates in most European languages. For example, the court of Charlemagne (742-814) was Christian and Latin-speaking, but the Frankish dialect of Old German was commonly used for personal names. Vernacular names were also widespread in Germany. As a result, many typical English and French names are of Germanic origin and have cognates in other European languages.
