Origins Available: Austrian, German


The Wyser surname is generally thought to be derived from the word "wische" or "wiese" both of which mean "meadow." Thus the earliest uses of the name may have been to describe someone "from the meadow." There have also been place names derived from this word, and there are no doubt instances where the surname derives from one of the place names.

Wyser Early Origins



The surname Wyser was first found in Austria, where the name Wiser became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In their later history the name became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
