The distinguished surname Strasser is of German origin. It is derived from the Old Germanic phrase "an der Strasse," which literally means "on the street." Thus, the original bearer of this name was most likely someone whose residence was located on a street.

Strasser Early Origins



The surname Strasser was first found in Bavaria and Austria, where the name Strasser came to be considered as playing a major role in the feudal society which affected the early development of Europe. The name Strasser became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which became important in the savage tribal and national conflicts, each group seeking power and status in an ever changing territorial profile.
