The distinguished German surname Kunzler is of two possible origins. Firstly, it is derived from the Middle High German "kanzelaere," meaning "a superior of an office or of a military orderly-room." Alternatively, it is derived from the Latin "cancellarius," meaning "chancellor."

Kunzler Early Origins



The surname Kunzler was first found in Swabia, where it is thought to have emerged; the earliest known documents of a variation of the name Kunzler date back to 1209, when Heinr. cognomento Cancellarius was recorded to be living in Worms, in the Rhineland region. The young Kunzler family played a major role in the history of the region, and contributed greatly to the development of medieval German society.
