The Eiser surname is derived from the Middle High German word "isen" which became the German "eisen," of which mean iron. Thus the name is generally thought to have been an occupational name for an ironworker, or an ironmonger; however, it may also have been used as a nickname, which later evolved into a surname

Eiser Early Origins



The surname Eiser was first found in Bavaria, where the name Eiser was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
