The name Mattle stems from two sources which were continually mixed up throughout the Middle Ages, so they can no longer be differentiated: one was Matthaeus the Evangelist, who was patron saint of tax collectors, and the other was Mattias ( Hebrew for "gift of the gods"), who was one of the twelve Apostles.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Matt, Matte, Mattlin, Matter, Mattler, Mattner, Mattmann and many more.
First found in Prussia, where the family contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation, and would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in local social and political affairs.
