Höller History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English , German



Early Origins of the Höller family


The surname Höller was first found in Austria, where the name Höller became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In their later history the name became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family. The name Höller, like many surnames, was occupational in origin, meaning that it was taken from the occupation of its first bearer. This name comes from the ancient Germanic word "hore" or "hure," meaning "whore," so the first bearer of the name was most likely the owner of a brothel. Such establishments were very common at the time and weren't seen as negatively as they are today; so there was no shame in being the owner of one.
