The roots of the German surname Mielke can be traced to the northern region of Schleswig-Holstein. The name is derived from the personal name Miel, a diminutive of the name Aemilius, and means "son of Miel."
The surname Mielke was first found in Rostock, where the name is believed to have first emerged. The earliest known instance of the name occurred in 1292, when Milike was a resident of Rostock. The Mielke family was instrumental during the early Middle Ages as the history of Schleswig-Holstein unfolded.
