The Kler surname may have evolved from the female personal name Klara; or it may have come from the Middle High German and Middle Low German "klar," meaning "pure," or "beautiful."

Kler Early Origins



The surname Kler was first found in Austria, where the name Kler emerged in medieval times as one of the notable families of the region. Since the 13th century the surname was closely associated with the social and economic advancements of the territory's feudal society.
