There are several possible origins for the name Weidler because the German word "weide" from which it originates has three quite different definitions. Firstly, it means "willow," implying that the first bearer could have been someone who lived near a large or notable willow tree; many surnames in Germany and most other European countries were taken from some noteworthy feature near the person's house. Secondly, it means "grazing," implying that the name may have been taken because the first bearer lived near good grazing lands. Lastly, the word also means "hunting"; this could mean that the man was a hunter, or it could mean that he lived near well-known hunting grounds.

Early Origins of the Weidler family


The surname Weidler was first found in Westphalia, where the name Weidler 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.
