The modern state of Germany is the glorious birthplace of the surname Beerli. By and large, hereditary surname were formed in Germany when most of the German states were a part of the Holy Roman Empire. At this time, as the population of Europe swelled and travel became easier, people began to encounter others sharing their own name and they avoided confusion by adopting a second name. A common form of surname found in Germany are those that are derived from nicknames. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The surname Beerli was a name for a person who had the strength of a bear. Ancient records reveal the name Beerli is derived from the Old German word ber, which means bear.
