Sander History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

The distinguished German surname Sander is of two possible origins. Firstly, the name may be derived from the personal name "Sanders," which is a diminutive of the popular Greek personal name "Alexander," meaning "protector." In this case, the surname would mean "son of Sanders." Alternatively, the name may be derived from the place name "Sand," the name of several towns in Germany. In this instance, the name would have been originally borne by someone hailing from one of these towns.

Early Origins of the Sander family

The surname Sander was first found in the region of the Rhineland, where it is believed to have first emerged. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Heinrich Genannt (called) Sanders, who was a resident of Esslingen in 1283. The Sander family was a major contributor during this early period, playing a major role in the development of the region's society.
