The ancient and distinguished German surname Fader is derived from the High German "vater," meaning "father." It is likely that the name was originally bestowed as a nickname on someone who acted as a counselor or elder within an extended family or community. Alternatively, the name "Vader" was often used to refer to a clergyman or to a male attendant in a hospital; thus, the progenitor of the name may have been one who held such an occupation.

Fader Early Origins



The surname Fader was first found in Bavaria, where the name Vatersheim 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.
