Echel Early Origins



The surname Echel was first found in Switzerland, where since ancient times the name Escher was closely associated with the area's feudal conflicts. As they became more prominent, the family formed alliances with powerful nobles and princes during the many turbulent events of the period. Thus Escher merged with other distinguished houses thereby enhancing and extending the family's influence.
