The roots of the German surname Rempen lie in the former duchy of Silesia, now part of Poland. The name means, simply, "son of Rempel," and was a popular first name in Silesia during the Middle Ages.

Rempen Early Origins



The surname Rempen was first found in Silesia, where it first emerged as a personal name. The first recorded bearer of Rempen as a first name was Rempel v. Nymancz, who lived in Glatz in 1350. The first instance of Rempen as a surname occurred in Breslau, where Matern Rempel was living in 1347. The young Rempen family was instrumental during these early times, playing an important role in the development of medieval German society.
