The surname Mehls 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."

Mehls Early Origins



The surname Mehls 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.
