The distinguished and ancient German surname Mengel is derived from the Middle High German word "mangaere," meaning "trader, peddler." It is likely that the progenitor of the name was one who held this occupation.

Mengel Early Origins



The surname Mengel was first found in Bavaria, Franconia, and Hessen, where the name is thought to have first emerged. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Mengelo de Nuenheim, who lived in Hessen in 1288. The young Mengel family became prominent in Bavaria during this early period, figuring prominently in the history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of medieval Bavarian society.
