Eitel Name Meaning

from a short form of a Germanic personal name formed with agi ‘point (of a sword)’, ‘corner’ (Old High German ecka). nickname from Middle High German itel ‘bare’, ‘only’. In the days before surnames had begun to make their mark, bearers of common personal names would often have a second personal name as a distinguishing feature; someone who did not have a second such name could be distinguished by this fact in itself, as for example itel Hans as against Hans Joachim. The meaning ‘vain’, ‘conceited’ is comparatively late and has probably not contributed to the family name.
