As with many Austrian family names, the distinguished surname Susser is a proud sign of a rich and ancient ancestry. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Austria were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. Austrian and German patronymic names emerged as early as the mid-9th century and the most common patronymic suffix is ez. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. The name Susser is derived from the Germanic personal name Süss, meaning "sweet."

Susser Early Origins



The surname Susser was first found in the regions of southern Austria, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many lines of the same house founded different branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their contributions to society.
