Last name: Kinder

I was told that the name is originally Celtic and so originates in Central Europe. As the Celts moved further west through Europe, they reached Normandy, came over to England and then were given land in Derbyshire- hence the name appearing there geographically. But there do appear to be Kinders all over North western Europe.
I believe it is German also
Hi, I am of Lithuanian and also carry this last name. (It is not uncommon surname in this country!). I believe it is of Prussian-German origin.

My family,German and French-canadian
My family are both German and French-Canadian
My research led my family back to Prussia can any Kinder out there clarify there family origins. As i don't think the Kinder surname is originally from England
I believe that Kinder (UK) is Norman. Vikings that left France to invade England. I grew up in Earby. My descendants were from around Huddersfield/Meltham
