The original bearer of the name Wiener, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful Vienna region of Austria.

Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate.The Wiener family originally lived in Vienna. Citizens of Vienna were known as Wieners. The name of the city comes from Vindabona, a Roman camp which originally occupied the site.

Early Origins of the Wiener family


The surname Wiener was first found in Austria, where the family made a considerable contribution to the feudal society which shaped modern Europe. The family branched into several houses, all of which played an important role in the local political conflicts which forged the nation. The first appearance of this name occurs in ancient chronicles of the city Basel in the year 1275. It was originally taken on by numerous branches living in and around the city Vienna. Later, many families within Jewish settlements also took on the name of their patron city. Vienna, Austria's capital, was originally a Celtic settlement, and the name goes back to Vindabona, a Roman camp belonging to their line of fortresses along the Rhine and Danube rivers. The house of Habsburg, rulers of the Empire, made Vienna the cultural center of Europe, that survived sieges by the Turks in 1529 and 1683. Here the mansions of the nobility were built in the elaborate Baroque style, as well as the fabulous imperial residences of the Hofburg and Schloss Schoenbrunn.
