The surname Bäbel is derived from the nickname "boebel", an Old German word meaning small. The original bearer of the name was someone who was noted for their diminutive size. A broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, nickname surnames refer to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character.

Bäbel Early Origins



The surname Bäbel was first found in the duchy of Wuerttemberg, where the family 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. The name originates from "Boebel," a word which referred to something small. Chronicles first mention Wernhard dictus Bebele, who was born in Frankfurt around 1307. Ancient chronicles also mention Hans der Bebler (c.1376) of Waldshut, Hans Baebler (c.1358) of Aargau, and Hans Boebel (c.1480) of Wuerttemberg.
