Klemper History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The origins of the surname Klemper are uncertain. Most likely, it comes from the German word "klempern," meaning "to clamp, bolt or rivet," and as such, it would have been an occupational name for a tinker. Other possible origins include the German word "klem," meaning "tight or stingy," "klemer," meaning "day worker" or perhaps the surname was created from the personal (first) name Clemens.
