Origins Available: Dutch, German


The Necker surname is derived from the name of the Neckar river, in Wuertemberg. No doubt the first person to bear this name was someone who lived along this river.

Necker Early Origins



The surname Necker was first found in Bavaria, where the name Necker 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.
