However, the term also denotes a rounded elevation and may therefore also be a topographic name for someone who lived by a knoll. Knöbel is also an archaic word for a servant, a variant of Knabel .Jewish (Ashkenazic; also Knöbel): artificial name from German Knobel (also Knöbel) ‘knot, node, outgrowth, knuckle’.
