The Mohlen surname is derived from the Low German word "möhl," which means "mill." Thus the name originally denoted one who lived near or worked in a mill.

Mohlen Early Origins



The surname Mohlen was first found in Wurtemberg and Bavaria, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name Mahler became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.
