Rainold Early Origins



The surname Rainold was first found in Saxony, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. Chronilces first mention meister Reynolt of Stralsburg in 1303 and Ernst Reinolt of Glatz in 1532. The oldest form of the name is "Reginold," which meant literally "clever in council." The ending -old changed to -hold during the 16th century. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
