Dressler Name Meaning

German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): occupational name for a turner, from Middle High German dreseler or dræselære (formed by the addition of a superfluous agent suffix to Old High German drasil ‘turner’, a primary derivative of draen ‘turn’, ‘spin’). A turner would make small objects not just from wood, but also from bone, ivory, and amber, all of which were widely used in the Middle Ages for their decorative value.
