The Gruener name comes from Middle High German word "gru-ene," which means "greenery." As a surname, it likely evolved from a topographic name for someone who lived in a green and leafy place; or as a habitational name from a place such as Gruna, or Grunau in Silesia.

Gruener Early Origins



The surname Gruener was first found in Bavaria, where the name Gruener 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.
