The Kummerle surname comes from the Middle High German "kummer," or "kumber," meaning "grief," "distress," or "trouble;" as such, it may have evolved from a nickname for someone who had suffered a loss or misfortune. "Kummer" is also slang word for a penitentiary, and it is possible that in some instances the surname may have arisen as nickname for a prisoner or jailer. There are also places named Kummer in Germany.

Kummerle Early Origins



The surname Kummerle was first found in Augsburg, an imperial free city in Southern Germany, where an Ulrich Chumber was found in 1288.
