Ehlert Early Origins



The surname Ehlert was first found in Germany, where the name Ehlert came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as numerous branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some of which were located in other countries. Through the acquisition of these estates as well as their important contributions to society, the family successfully elevated their social status. Like many surnames, the name Ehlert is taken from a personal name common at the time surnames first began to be used in Germany. The name comes from the Germanic words "agil," meaning "the edge or point of a weapon" and "hard" meaning "hardy or strong."
