An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016
The surname Mehl is an occupational
name for a painter, or more specifically a painter of stained glass, derived from the Old German "malen", and the Middle High German word "malen" which both meant "to paint."
The surname Mehl was first found in Wurtemberg and Bavaria
, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name Mahler became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal
System and the nation.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Mahler, Maler, Mahl, Mahle, Male, Mal, Maller, Maehler, Mehler, Mailer, Mayler, Maylor, Mailor and many more.
