The Stetler surname derives from the Middle High German word "stadel," meaning "a barn." Thus a "stadeler" was the administrator of a storage barn.
The surname Stetler was first found in Austria, 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 great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation. Records show a Manegolt vom Stadel in Styria in 1295; and a Nicolaus Stadler in Iglau in 1378.
