On my homepage I published an article (in German) about "Mosellaendische
Ortsnamen als juedische Familiennamen". You can find it under the following
address:

http://www.angelfire.com/art/gregorbrand/Namen.html

It deals with Jewish names >from the 17th and 18th century who were derived >from
the names of villages and towns in the German Mosel region (between Coblence and
Trier). Some of these surnames are still existing today.

Surnames mentioned are for example: BERNKASTEL/BERNCASTEL; SCHWEICH; TRIER;
WITTLICH; TRITEM; KLESSERT; DETZEM; SOBERNHEIM; KELSEN; MEHRING; MEERFELD;
KILBARG; PINNERICH

There were of cause different spellings of these names.

With best wishes to all
