Melcer Early Origins



The surname Melcer was first found in Austria, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. Melchior was the name of one of the biblical three Wise Men or Kings (Kaspar, Melchior and Balthasar,) and means literally in Hebrew "King of Light." In the 15th century it became very popular as a first name. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made the territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
