Germany. Before the late Middle Ages, German people were known only by a single name. However, as populations increased and people began to travel more, it became necessary to adopt a second name. Many people, such as the Kellerr family, adopted the name of their feudal occupation as their surname. The name Kellerr is derived from the Middle High German word "kelner," which corresponds to the English occupation of steward. The kelner was the manager of the noble household.
