The Friedland surname evolved from the popular German personal name Friederich.

Friedland Early Origins



The surname Friedland was first found in East Prussia and Silesia. It later became more prominent as numerous branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some of which were located in other countries. Through the acquisition of these estates as well as their important contributions to society, the family successfully elevated their social status.
