SASSER Family HistoryThis most interesting and unusual surname has two possible derivations, one Old German, the other early medieval English. The surname may have been a German metonymic occupational name for a maker of knives and swords, from the Old German word "sahs", sword, knife, plus the agent suffix "er", meaning someone who works with. An ancient Germanic tribe were named from the same element, referring to a kind of knife or dagger that they used; the tribe gave its name, "Sachsen", to the region where they settled in Roman times; the modern English name for the region is Saxony.
