The history of German last names is a fascinating topic. For many people, their last name is a reflection of their heritage and family history. German last names have a long and rich history dating back to the early days of the country.

Some of the most common German last names are Mueller, Schmidt, Weber, and Hoffmann. These names are derived from occupations such as miller, blacksmith, weaver, and innkeeper. Other common German last names include Bauer (farmer), Koch (cook), and Schulz (schoolteacher).

German last names can also be taken from places where families lived or owned land. For example, the name "Bach" comes from the German word for "stream," while "Wald" means "forest."
