The roots of the distinguished German surname Hollenweckir lie in the province of Westphalia. The name is derived from the Old High German words "hal," meaning "hollow," and "weg," meaning "way." Thus, the name was most likely originally borne either by someone who lived near a ravine or a narrow pass or by someone who worked as a road mender, filling in hollows in public pathways.

Hollenweckir Early Origins



The surname Hollenweckir was first found in Westphalia, where it is believed that the name first emerged as a surname. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Giselbert Holewecke, who was living in Cologne in 1159. Due to the occupational and habitational origins of the name, it is likely that several original bearers emerged independently in various regions of Germany during the early Middle Ages, creating many branches of the Hollenweckir family.
