About the Gruner surname

The surname Gruner can mean farmer or tanner. But it can also be a habitational reference, relating to something green, e.g., a green house, a forest, etc. In the case of the Gruner family from Mellingen (Thuringia, Germany), the name likely is a reference to the towns of Gruena or Gruenau. Mellingen church records show Gruners back to the mid 1600's.
