What's in a name?

Molenaar is an occupational name for a miller, derived from the Old Germanic "Mulinari." The surname Molenaar was first found in Southern Germany in the Middle Ages.  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.

In the Middle Ages, many different cultural groups lived in the German states. That's why there are many regional variations of German surnames from that era. 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.
