The history of the Uhle family name begins in the German province of Bavaria. Uhle is a nickname surname, a class of German names derived from eke-names, or added names, that described people by a personal characteristic or other attribute. Uhle is a name for a wealthy young man, who was a protector.

Uhle Early Origins



The surname Uhle was first found in Bavaria, where the name was associated in the mediaeval period with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later emerge as a family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs. During the Middle Ages the name was concentrated around Nuremberg, though not restricted to this area. Founded in 1050, Nuremberg was one of the main cities of Franconia, before its annexation by Bavaria in 1806. It became a major center of exchange for goods coming south from the Baltic ports, and products moving north from the Mediterranean. Frederick II named Nuremberg a Free Imperial City in the 13th century, and during this period of economic prosperity it became a center of the Arts. It was the birthplace of the poet Hans Sachs and the painter Albrecht Duerer.
