Multiple Origins for the Surname Wenzel



Wenzel Early Origins



The surname Wenzel was first found in Germany, where the name Wenzel came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society.

Through the acquisition of these estates as well as their important contributions to society, the family successfully elevated their social status.
