Name Meaning

Some characteristic forenames: German Kurt, Otto, Hans, Erwin, Manfred, Wolfgang, Arno, Franz, Gunter, Klaus, Bernd, Florian.

German and Dutch: from Middle High German keiser ‘emperor’, from the Latin imperial title Caesar. This was the title borne by Holy Roman Emperors from Otto I (962) to Francis II (who relinquished the title in 1806). Later, it was borne by the monarch of Bismarck's united Germany (1871–1918). It is very common as a German surname, originating partly as an occupational name for a servant in the Emperor's household, partly as a nickname for someone who behaved in an imperious manner, and partly as a topographic or habitational name referring to a house or inn distinguished by the sign of an emperor. This surname is also found in many other European countries, for example in France (Alsace and Lorraine), Belgium, Denmark, Hungary, Poland, Czechia, and Slovenia (see also 3 below).

Jewish (Ashkenazic): artificial name from German Kaiser ‘emperor’, adopted (like Graf , Herzog , etc.) because of its aristocratic connotations.
