Gaehler Early Origins



The surname Gaehler was first found in Silesia, where the name gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. The name derives from the occupational name for a town crier, for which the German word is "geller." It is also a nickname for a man with red hair, from the Yiddish "gel." It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.
