Bavaria, one of the oldest and largest of the German states, is the birthplace of the Spangler family. After the 12th century, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules. Names derived from occupations were particularly common in this region. Spangler is an occupational surname for metal worker having derived from the German word spange, meaning a clasp or buckle of the sort such a craftsman might have designed.

Spangler Early Origins



The surname Spangler was first found in Bavaria, where the name spread to the north and gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries such as Holland, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.

Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada also provided homes to many. Early settlers bearing the Spangler surname or a spelling variation of the name include:
