The German state of Bavariais the ancestral home of the Büttner family. Hereditary surnames began to be used in Germany during the 12th century. Names like Büttner, that came from the name of the job done by their initial bearer, were very popular. Büttner is an occupational name for a cooper or a barrel maker. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the German word Bute, which means cask or wine barrel. In the Middle Ages, the Büttner family was responsible for making the barrels that held ale, beer and wines. In Bavaria, the Büttner family became renowned for its many branches and for the influential role it played in the social, economic and political development of the region.
