Does anyone know where this name originated from (English, German, etc.) and what it means? My grandmother who was the wife of a military man (who as a result traveled) said it was most easily pronounced by the Germans. However, it sure does look like the English name of "Poole." I haven't really looked into its origins.

Name though to be a place one-i.e one who lives by a pool and is early English.
Haven't noticed it on the Continent (i.e.Europe).

i heard one account (as my paternal grandfather was of french origin) that the name was "americanized" from a french version, something like "Poulier". i guess that would mean "chicken farmer"? just another theory.

Another theory:
There were many itinerant workers from Ireland digging pools for farmers - one navvy could have been nicknamed 'Pooler'. I have a tree going back to 1832 - Comber, Co. Down IRELAND. Biggest group of Poolers is Staffordshire, England.

Don't buy that one!!
The Poolers came across to today's Northern Ireland early in the 1600s, probably from soouth east England, where the name originated-yep it could have something to do with pools-but then it also may be of French derivation. The County Down reasonably well understood.

Neat! Suppose it could be Poulet - chicken too. Polar comes up also. The Northern Ireland connection is interesting - was this the Rev.Pooler who was part of the English "Plantation" of NI?
My connection is to a Capt Thomas Pooler who either drowned with his ship scuttling it for the insurance or was hanged for it! (Family Legend!) This was 1832 while his wife Maragaret Donnely was expecting John - Born in Comber that year!
