Origins Available: German, Jewish


The name Schindle was born in the beautiful region of Bohemia, which is now part of Czechoslavakia. In the Middle Ages, Bohemia was a part of the Holy Roman Empire, which was characterized by the Feudal System. Before this era, people were known only by a single name. However, as the population increased and travelers set out on their journeys, it became necessary for people to adopt a second name to identify themselves. Many people, such as the Schindle family, adopted the name of their feudal occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Schindle was an occupational name for a roofer. The name Schindle is derived from the Old German word "schindel," which means "shingle" or "small pebbles."

Schindle Early Origins



The surname Schindle was first found in Bohemia, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the major political changes which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
