Wendling Early Origins



The surname Wendling was first found in Germany, where the name Wendling came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as numerous branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some of which were located in other countries. Through the acquisition of these estates as well as their important contributions to society, the family successfully elevated their social status. The name was given to a person from Wendland, a place in north-east Germany. Alternatively, the name could have been derived from Wendling, a municipality in the district of Grieskirchen in Upper Austria.
