The ancient and distinguished German surname Grammir is of several possible origins. Firstly, it is derived from the Middle High German word "gram," meaning "angry, annoyed." In this case, the name would have been bestowed on the progenitor as a nickname. Alternatively, the surname may be derived from a place name; there is a town in Bavaria called Grämling, and a town in Schleswig called Gramm.

Grammir Early Origins



The surname Grammir was first found in Swabia, where the oldest known documents of its written history have been found; however, the origins of the name make it likely that several branches of the Grammir family emerged independently in different regions during the Middle Ages. The first recorded bearer of the name was Berhtolt der Grammer, who lived in Rottweil, Swabia in 1282. The branches of the young Grammir family were instrumental during this early period, and each contributed greatly to the development of the medieval society of its particular region.
