    Name Meaning

    German (mainly Middle Rhine): occupational name for a butcher, Middle High German metzeler, from Latin macellarius ‘dealer in meat’, from macellum ‘stall (at a market), meat market’. This surname is also found in France (Alsace and Lorraine).

    History: The earliest American bearers of the surname Metzler were the Mennonites in PA. Their progenitor was Valentine Metzler, from Switzerland, who came to Lancaster County in 1738 as a young boy with his father, Yost, and married Anna Nissley in 1749.
