VOLKER Family History

Recorded in over forty spelling forms ranging from Folk, Folke, Volk, Volke, Volkes, Volker, Volkers, Volkel, Folkel, Voltz, Volkelts, Volkaerts, Volkert, Volkmann, Volkering, Volsch, Volser, and many others, this is a surname of Germanic origins. It derives from the pre 7th century word "folk" which implies a tribe, and which in turn became a popular baptismal name before developing as a surname after the 13th century. To the base form and over the centuries, has been added many different suffix elements usually implying the patronymic "son of" or the diminutive "little".
