The name Roehm originally referred to a pilgrim or merchant traveling to Rome.

Roehm Early Origins



The surname Roehm was first found in Saxony, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.
