This surname is also found in France (mainly Alsace, Lorraine, and Nord).

German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): occupational name from German Zelle ‘small workshop’ + the agent suffix -er for someone who owned or was employed at a Zelle. Among Jews it may also have been an adoption of the German surname.
