Origins Available: Dutch, German, Norwegian


The German state of Saxony is the glorious birthplace of the distinguished surname Haller. In the medieval era, the German lands were inhabited by a variety of Barbarian tribes. The ancient dukedom of Saxony derived its name from the Germanic tribe name the Saxons who inhabited the territory after the fall of the Roman Empire.

Haller Early Origins



The surname Haller was first found in Saxony, where the name could be considered to have made an early contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of early development of Europe. The name probably derived from the city of Halle, became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the savage tribal and national conflicts, as each group sought power and status in an unstable territorial profile.
