Origins Available: English, German


Lower Saxony was the ancestral homeland of the prestigious surname Grosser. The surname Grosser is a nickname surname. Further research revealed that the name is derived from a nickname that was given to the first person who used the name. Belonging to the category of hereditary surnames, nicknames are a broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, which can refer either directly or indirectly to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They often described the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character. This name was probably derived from the High German word "groz," which meant "large" or "big."

Grosser Early Origins



The surname Grosser was first found in Saxony, where the family contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation and would later play a large role in the political conflicts of the area. The family branched into many houses, many of which acquired estates and manors throughout the surrounding regions, where they played significant roles in the social and political affairs.
