The surname Schmall has a long and distinguished history in Germany, dating back to the Early Middle Ages. The name is derived from the German "schmal," meaning "narrow, small, slight," and is often used as an element in compound names, such as "Schmalbauch" (small belly), "Schmalhoffart" (small pride), and "Schmalfuss" (narrow foot).

Schmall Early Origins



The surname Schmall was first found in Schleswig-Holstein, where the surname is thought to have first emerged. The earliest known bearer of the name was Ecgeho dictus Smale, who was a resident of Hamburg in the year 1270. The Schmall family established its presence in Schleswig-Holstein in these formative days and quickly became prominent, figuring prominently in the early history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of the medieval culture of North Germany.
