The roots of the distinguished German surname Nessler lie in the former duchy of Swabia. The name is derived from the Middle High German "nesteler," meaning "maker of thread or string." It is therefore likely that the progenitor of this name held such an occupation.

Nessler Early Origins



The surname Nessler was first found in Swabia, where it is thought to have emerged. The original bearer of the name was likely a manufacturer of string or thread who came to be known as "Nessler" within his community. The earliest records of the name have been traced to the city of Koblenz, where Contrat Nesteli was living in 1290. The young Nessler family played a crucial role in the early history of the region, and contributed greatly to the development of medieval Swabian society.
