The surname Hägelli is a local surname; it is derived from the Old German word hagi, which means farm. Topographical surnames, were given to a people who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties. As a general rule, the greater the distance between an individual and their homeland, the larger the territory they were named after. For example, a person who only moved to another parish would be known by the name of their original village, while people who migrated to a different country were often known by the name of a region or country from which they came.

Hägelli Early Origins



The surname Hägelli was first found in Wuerttemberg and Baden, where the family made a considerable contribution to the feudal society which shaped modern Europe. The family branched into several houses, all of which played an important role in the local political conflicts which forged the nation. One of the first individual bearers of this name to be mentioned in ancient chronicles was one "Hagel" of Wuerttemberg in the year 1281. Early chronicles also mention Conrat Hegelli of Constance in 1392, and Heinrich Hegelin of Moehringen in 1396.
