The distinguished German surname Emmel is of two possible origins. Firstly, it is derived from "Emmel," the name of a town located near the city of Trier in the Rhineland-Palatinate region on the Mosel River. In this case, the original bearer of the name would have been a native of this town. Alternatively, the name may be derived from the personal name Amale, which is itself derived from the Old High German "amassig," meaning "perseverance."

Emmel Early Origins



The surname Emmel was first found in Swabia, the region south of Rhineland-Palatinate, where the town of Emmel is located. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Cuonrad Immeli, who was living in Dentingen in 1306. The Emmel family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval German society.
