The origins of the surname Mollenschadel are rather uncertain; there are several possible derivations stemming from various sources. The Middle High German word "mol(le)" meaning "salamander" is one origin; this interpretation refers to a fat, clumsy person. Another possible source is the Swabian word "molle" meaning "bull, steer," indicating a person who is stubborn. While both of these interpretations are nickname origins, it is also possible that Mollenschadel is a derivation of Germanic personal names, indicating descent.

Mollenschadel Early Origins



The surname Mollenschadel was first found in Konstanz, at the southern border of the Baden-Wuerttemberg region. The name dates back as far as 1233, when Sifrit Molle of Konstanz is recorded to have lived.
