The distinguished and ancient surname Kreisler means "maker of earthenware utensils, potter." It is likely that the progenitor of the name came from a family of potters.

Kreisler Early Origins



The surname Kreisler was first found in Switzerland, where the young Kreisler family was gaining a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It held a family seat in the canton of Friburg. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.
