The ancestral home of the ancient Rexrod family lies in the very heart of Central Germany, in the region of Thuringia. The name Rexrod is derived from "Rexerode," the name of a now-abandoned city in Thuringia. "Rexrod" is made up of two elements: the Latin "rex," meaning "king," and the Lower German "rod," meaning "marshland."

Rexrod Early Origins



The surname Rexrod was first found in Thuringia, where the ancient city of Rexerode was located. It is likely that the progenitor of the surname was a native of Rexerode who had moved to another city, and was thus referred to by the name of his hometown. The young Rexrod family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval Thuringian society.
