The name Eisener originated in the German speaking Austrian Empire, which was primarily located in the Danube River Basin. Surnames that identified the bearer by occupation, like Eisener, became common in Germany after the 12th century. Eisener is a name for a person who was a iron worker or iron seller.

Eisener Early Origins



The surname Eisener was first found in Austria, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The family would later emerge as nobility with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs. Ancient chronicles first mention one "Walther der Isiner" in the year 1272.

Eisener 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 Eisener include Eisner, Aisner, Eissner, Aissner, Eisener, Eisnert, Eisen, Aisener, Isener, Isner, Issner and many more.
