Name Meaning

Americanized form of Swiss German Joder: from a shortened form of the personal name Theodor(us) (see Theodore ). This was the name of the patron saint of western Switzerland. Compare Yother and Yotter .

History: Many of the Yoders are Swiss Mennonites (Amish) originating from the canton of Bern. Their surname, which is one of the two most common names among the Mennonites and Amish (the other is Miller ), is also spelled Yother, Yothers, and Yotter. Several (possibly first) Mennonite Yoders arrived in PA in 1742, while the first of their namesakes belonging to the Reformed Church came to PA several decades earlier, already.
