The roots of the distinguished German surname Gassner lie in the region of Bavaria. The name is derived from the German word "Gasse," meaning "street, alley," and denotes someone who lives either on the main road of the village or in an alley.

Gassner Early Origins



The surname Gassner was first found in Bavaria, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power. One of the earliest known bearers of the name was Arnold in der gassen, who was a citizen of Ober-Alpfen in 1266.
