Welz Coat of Arms / Welz Family Crest

The associated coat of arms for this name are recorded in J.B Rietstaps Armorial General. Illustrated by V & H.V Rolland's. This Monumental work took 23 years to complete and 85,000 coats of Arms are included in this work. This German surname of WELZ was from a Germanic personal name composed of the elements WALD (rule) + HARI (army), introduced into England by the Normans in 1066 in the form WALTIER. Other spellings of the name include WELSER, WELZER, WALTHER, WELTER, WOLTER, WOLDER, WOHLDERT, WAUTER, WALTZ, WALZEL, WALTI and WELTI to name but a few. Surnames which were derived from ancient Germanic personal names have the same meaning in many languages. The court of Charlemagne (Charles the Great, king of the Franks (742-814) was Christian and Latin speaking). The vernacular was the Frankish dialect of Old High German, and the personal names in use were Germanic and vernacular. These names were adopted in many parts of northwest Europe, particularly among the noble ruling classes. Hereditary surnames were found in Germany in the second half of the 12th century - a little later than in England and France. It was about the 16th century that they became stabilized. A notable member of the name is Franz Most WELSER, born on the 16th August 1960 in Linz, Austria. He is the Principal Conductor of the Austrian Youth Orchestra. He made his British debut in 1986 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Over the centuries, most people in Europe have accepted their surname as a fact of life, as irrevocable as an act of God. However much the individual may have liked or disliked the surname, they were stuck with it, and people rarely changed them by personal choice. A more common form of variation was in fact involuntary, when an official change was made, in other words, a clerical error. The lion depicted in the arms is the noblest of all wild beasts which is made to be the emblem of strength and valour, and is on that account the most frequently borne in Coat-Armour.
