The name Kleinert comes from the German province known as the Rhineland. In pre-medieval times, the German people used only one name, but as the population increased, hereditary surnames became necessary for people to maintain unique identities. Kleinert is a nickname surname, a style of name based on an eke-name, or added name, that described a characteristic of its original bearer. Kleinert is a name for a small or short person deriving its origin from the German word "klien," which means "small."

Kleinert Early Origins



The surname Kleinert was first found in the Rhineland, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.
