The distinguished surname Fedele is of German origin. It is derived from the Old Germanic term "Fiedeler," meaning "a fiddler," and was most likely first borne by a traveling musician.

Fedele Early Origins



The surname Fedele was first found in Austria, where since ancient times the Fiedler family had been a prominent contributor to the development of the district. Always prominent in social affairs, the name Fiedler became an integral part of the region's turbulent events and thus the family emerged to form alliances with other distinguished families. The earliest known bearer of the name was Heinrich Fideler, recorded in the "Wurttembergisches Urkundenbuch" in 1258.
