The Rathl surname derives from the Middle High German word "ra-t," or the Swiss "räth" which mean "counsel," or "advice."

Rathl Early Origins



The surname Rathl was first found in Austria, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In their later history the name became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
