Kinder Name Meaning

English: habitational name from a place in Derbyshire, of unknown etymology (probably a pre-English hill name, but the form is obscure). German: from the genitive plural of Kind ‘child’, possibly denoting someone who had a lot of children, as in Hans der Kinder ‘Hans of the children’ (Eisleben 15th century), or short for some compound such as Kindervater ‘male midwife’ or Kinderfreund ‘one who likes children’. German: variant of Günther (see Guenther).
