Multiple Origins for the Surname Bayer



Bayer Early Origins



The surname Bayer was first found in Lower Austria and Tyrol, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation, which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in local social and political affairs. Literally, the name means "Bavarian," but all of the most prominent branches arose in either Austria or Wuerttemberg, and in particular regions bordering on Bavaria.
