Although the early records of this surname come from Southern Germany, the name itself is thought to come from the place name Kiel in Holstein, a former duchy in northern Germany.

Kehl Early Origins



The surname Kehl was first found in Baden, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. There are record of bearers of von Kile and Kileman in Lübeck in the year 1300. There was one family originally seated at Kielmanseck in Wurtemburg where they were confirmed as nobles in 1578.
