Wunderlich Early Origins



The surname Wunderlich was first found in Bavaria, where the name was closely identified in early medieval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. Bearers of the name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs. The name comes from the Old High German word "wundar," meaning "marvel or puzzle." It probably originated as a nickname for someone mysterious or eccentric.
