The roots of the distinguished German surname Klunder lie in the province of Hessen. The name is derived from the Middle High German word "glunkern" or "klunkern," meaning "swinging and dangling of a bell," and refers to "a shuffling, slouching, and sluggish person."

Klunder Early Origins



The surname Klunder was first found in Hessen, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families in the region. From the 13th century onwards, the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation. The first recorded bearer of the surname Klunder was Heinrich Glungg, who lived in Villingen in 1320.
