The ancient roots of the Edell family are found in the German state of Bavaria. Edell was a local name, for someone who lived in Bavaria, where their name Edell derives from the German words, edel, which means noble, and mann, which means man. This name literally translates to nobleman, which indicates their rank between the knightly and the general classes of the population.

Edell Early Origins



The surname Edell was first found in Bavaria, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.

Edell Spelling Variations



Many cultural groups lived in the German states in medieval times. Each had its own dialect and traditions, and unique variations of popular names. Low German, which is similar to contemporary Dutch, was spoken in Westphalia. German names are characterized by additions such as regional suffixes and phrases that tell something about the origin or background of its original bearer. Further contributing to the variation in German names was the fact that there were no spelling rules in medieval times: scribes recorded names according to their sound. The recorded spelling variations of Edell include Edel, Edelmann, Edellmann, Edellman, Eddelman, Eddelmann, Edelman, Edell and many more.
