The Kranzle surname comes from the Old High German "cranz" meaning "garland" or "wreath," and was most likely originally an occupational name for a wreath maker.

Kranzle Early Origins



The surname Kranzle was first found in various parts of the Holy Roman Empire. There is a reference from the year 1308 of Berthold Krantz, who was then serving as "Ratsherr" (councilor) in the city of Strassburg. A Johan Crenzelin is on record in 1288 in Worms and a bearer of Krenzelmacherin is on record in Prague in 1403.
