The surname Kieferl was first found in Silesia, where the family gained a significant reputation for its contributions to the emerging mediaeval society. As an occupational name, the name was derived from the German word "dial" which means "copper." The German word "kufe" means "Barrel" and as such, the name is a cognitive of the English name "Cooper." Alternatively, the name could have been a topographic name for someone who lived in a pine forest, derived from the German word "Kiefer" which means "pine."
