Tendler Name Meaning
German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): occupational name for a dealer in secondhand goods, Middle High German tendelære, Yiddish tendler, an agent derivative of tändeln ‘to deal’, ‘to trade’, ultimately from Late Latin tantum ‘price’ (originally meaning ‘so much’). The German surname, like the vocabulary word, is restricted largely to Bavaria, Austria, and the Sudetenland.
