The Kämpfer name is derived from the Middle High German word "kampf," meaning "fight;" thus it may have originally been an occupational name for a successful fighter; or perhaps a nickname for someone known to lose his temper.

Kämpfer Early Origins



The surname Kämpfer was first found in the Rhineland, where this family was a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always influential in social affairs, the family became an integral part of that turbulent region as it forged alliances with other families within the region and the nation.
