The origins of the surname Klempert 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.

Early Origins of the Klempert family


The surname Klempert was first found in Bavaria, where the name was closely identified in early medieval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs.
