Mischler History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
It is likely that the surname Mischler is occupational in origin, being derived from the Middle High German word "Mutze" which denotes a type of white bread. In this case then the original bearer of the name may have been a baker. Alternatively, the surname may have originated in a nickname derived from a physical attribute or character trait. The Middle High German word "mutzen " has the meaning to decorate, as with a smile. The surname Mischler, with the suffix "-bach" may also be locative, having been derived from a geographical feature, probably near the residence of the original bearer. "Mutzenbach" can mean dirty stream, and so the term "Mutzenbacher" denotes someone who lives by the dirty stream.
