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 Mutschler, 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.
