What's in a name?

Molenaar is an occupational name for a miller and is a very common name in the Netherlands. As hereditary surnames began to be adopted in that area beginning in the 12th century, people were often identified by the kind of work they did. The family name is derived from the Old Germanic "Mulinari" and was first found in Southern Germany in the Middle Ages. It is unclear whether the name moved to the region from Germany or arose independently in Holland. 

In the Middle Ages, Westphalians spoke Low German, which is similar to modern Dutch. Spelling variations of the name Molenaar include Mueller, Muller, Mueler, Muler, Miller, Moeller, Muellner, Milner, Molner and many more.
