The surname Enders was first found in Saxony, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Ende, End, Enden, Ender, Endern, Endegeest, Endepoel, Enderl, Enderlein, Enderli, Enderlin, Endermann, Enders, Endgasser, Endingen, Endorf and many more.

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Ne tentes aut perfice
Motto Translation: Attempt not or accomplish.
