The name Kellner is derived from the Middle High German word "kellaere" which referred to a "cellarer," that is, an administrator and manager of revenues of an estate. As such, the name was no doubt originally occupational.

Kellner Early Origins



The surname Kellner was first found in Swabia, where the family contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation and would later play a large role in the political conflicts of the area. The family branched into many houses, many of which acquired estates and manors throughout the surrounding regions, where they played significant roles in the social and political affairs. Individual bearers of this name first mentioned in ancient chronicles include Herman der Kelner (Keller) of Rottweil, Wuerttemberg, in 1314.
