An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The distinguished German surname Kentzler is of two possible origins. Firstly, it is derived from the Middle High German "kanzelaere," meaning "a superior of an office or of a military orderly-room." Alternatively, it is derived from the Latin "cancellarius," meaning "chancellor."

Kentzler Early Origins



The surname Kentzler was first found in Swabia, where it is thought to have emerged; the earliest known documents of a variation of the name Kentzler date back to 1209, when Heinr. cognomento Cancellarius was recorded to be living in Worms, in the Rhineland region. The young Kentzler family played a major role in the history of the region, and contributed greatly to the development of medieval German society.
