The roots of the distinguished German surname Ohler lie in the region of Hessen. The name is derived from the Middle High German "öler," meaning "oil miller," and was likely first borne by a practitioner of this occupation.

Ohler Early Origins



The surname Ohler was first found in Hessen, where it first emerged in the early Middle Ages, and the young Ohler family played an important role in the region's history. The first known bearer of the name was Johann Oleier, who was living in Frankfurt in the year 1291. The young Ohler family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval Hessen society.
