The surname Koettler was first found in Swabia, where the name became noted for its many branches with the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In its later history the name became a power unto itself; bearers were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family. The name most likely comes from the German word "kottler," meaning "keeper of a granary or silo." Many surnames were taken from the profession of their first bearers; so it is entirely possible that the first person to bear the surname Koettler was such a person.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Kotter, Köter, Koeter, Köther, Kottler, Kother, Kather, Koettler, Koetler and many more.
