Name Meaning

German:1. habitational name for someone from Kleve in the Rhineland ( see Kleve 1). 2. German: nickname for a complainer, from Middle High German klewen ‘to whine’. 3. German: possibly from Middle Low German klēver ‘clover’, also ‘resin’, ‘turpentine’, hence a metonymic occupational name either for a farmer who grew clover or perhaps for someone who collected and distilled turpentine. In the Alemannic area this was also a nickname for a bungler.
