DAEFELE or DEFELE surname origins #germany


Alice Josephs
 

Is there anyone out there who has the surname DAEFELE or DEFELE in
their family, especially >from the area around Kochendorf, now Bad
Friedrichshall, near Heilbronn, Baden Wuerttemberg? Please contact me
at genealice@josephsonline.net.

I would also be interested if anyone knows the origin of this surname,
as it seems quite unusual (or am I wrong ...?).

Thank you to those who replied on the origin of DAEFELE or DEFELE. Both
Ralph Baer and Lars Menk connected it to a dimunitive of the David,
with Lars giving me my own family's adoption of this surname in
Kochendorf as the source of his information on this surname. It does
still appear to be an unusual name. Thanks!
