KUHL Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Kuhl, Kuhle, Kuhlen, Kuhlemann, Kuhlmann Kull, Kuller, and Kulling, this is an ancient surname of Germanic origins. First recorded in the 8th century as the personal name 'Kollo', it was originally a development of the word 'kule' meaning a hollow or shallow valley. There are a number of places in Germany so called, and for some nameholders at least the surname is locational. In the medieval period it is said that the surname meaning and spelling was changed by association with the High German word 'kuhl' meaning cool.
