It is likely that the surname Mishler 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 Mishler, 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.

Mishler Early Origins



The surname Mishler was first found in Baden, where a Wernher Mutzhart was recorded in Esslingen in 1366. The name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
