The distinguished surname Blaser is German in origin. It is derived from the Middle High German "blasaere," meaning "trumpeter," and was most likely first borne by someone who played a wind instrument.

Blaser Early Origins



The surname Blaser was first found in Austria, where the Blaes family became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In their later history the name became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
