The distinguished surname Caplinger comes from Austria, and is of two possible origins. Firstly, the name is derived from the Austrian term "Chaepplingaern," meaning "people living next to a chapel." Alternatively, the name may be derived from the place name "Caplendorf," the name of an Austrian village. Either of these origins would indicate the place of residence of the original bearer.

Caplinger Early Origins



The surname Caplinger was first found in Austria, where it first emerged in the early Middle Ages. The first known bearer of the name was one known as bi der Chappel ("near the chapel",) who lived in Regensburg in 1272. The young Caplinger family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval Austrian society.
