Schlossberg Early Origins



The surname Schlossberg was first found in Bavaria, where the name was closely identified in early medieval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. Bearers of the name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for their involvement in social, economic and political affairs. The German word "schloss" has two meanings, "castle" and "lock," which lead to two possible origins for the name; it might refer to one who lived near a castle, or it may have been an occupational name, being given to a locksmith. The latter origin is by far the most likely for the Schlosser and Schlossmacher forms of the name, whereas the origin of Schloss could be either.
