Reimer Early Origins



The surname Reimer was first found in Austria, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Chronicles first mention Johann Reimers of Bremen in 1293, Nokel Reimar of Eger, Bohemia, in 1350, and Hensl Raimer of Olmuetz. The oldest form of the name is "Reinmar" or "Reginmar," which meant literally "famous councillor." Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.
