Schmahl Early Origins



The surname Schmahl was first found in Pommerania, where the name Schmahl contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation, and would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. Over time, the Schmahl family name branched into other houses, where their influence continued to be felt because of the important role they played in the local social and political affairs. The name Schmahl is roughly equivalent to the English name "Small," probably having been given to someone who was short in stature.
