The Gloeckler surname is derived from the Middle High German word "glocke," or "glogge," meaning a "bell." The name may have been an occupational name for someone who rang bells; or it may have come from any of several places named from this word.

Gloeckler Early Origins



The surname Gloeckler was first found in Bohemia, where the family was anciently associated with the political and religious 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. The family founded numerous branches, many of which acquired manors and estates in surrounding regions, where they contributed to the prosperity of their society.
