Wetzel Genealogy & History

Wetzel is a German surname originating in Silesia and Bohemia. Based on the German name Wenzel, which is a pet name for the Middle High German Wenze (itself taken from Old Czech Veceslav), it is composed of vece (greater) and slav (glory). Veceslav was the name of the patron saint of Bohemia, fighter of paganism. Spelling variations in Wetzel genealogy include Fenzl, Wanzel, Weczel, Weczold, Wetzlaw, Wetzold, Wetzler, Wetz, and Wenceslas (anglicized Veceslav). American Wetzel family history began in Philadelphia in 1731 and includes American baseball player Donald Wetzel, co-owner of the automated teller machine patent. The Wetzel coat of arms' lion with flaming cannonballs signifies military courage.
