The surname Ulmer is a local name derived from Ulm, a city in southwest Germany. The city of Ulm dates from at least 854, and was probably settled much earlier than that.

The surname Ulmer was first found in Wuerttemburg and Baden, in the Swabian Alps, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of this region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation. The name most probably has its origin in the mediaeval city of Ulm (mentioned as early as 854,) south-east of Stuttgart.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Ulm, Ulmer, Ullmer, Ulmers and others.
