The roots of the distinguished surname Dotzlur lie in the former dutchy of Swabia. The name is of two possible origins; firstly, it may be derived from a High German word meaning "small, feeble person." In this case, the name would have initially been bestowed on the progenitor as a nickname. Alternatively, the name may be derived from "Dotzlar," the name of a town in Siegen; in this instance, the original bearer of the name would have been a native of this town.

Early Origins of the Dotzlur family


The surname Dotzlur was first found in Swabia, where it is thought to have originated. During the Middle Ages, it was common for a new resident of a city to be referred to by the name of his hometown; thus, it is likely that one of the original bearers was a native of the town of Dotzlar who had moved to Swabia. The earliest known bearer of the name was Tötzlin, who lived in this region in 1337. The young Dotzlur family played an important role in the history of the region, and was instrumental in the development of medieval Swabian society.
