About the Bender surname

Our Bender family name is Jewish and comes from the town of "Bender" located in the Ukraine north west of Odessa. My paternal grandfather Charles M. Bender arrived in the U.S. from there around 1911.

Bender can also be German, originally shortened from "Buettenbender" or "Fassbender" or any name that means the similar which is making (binding) barrels etc.
