In Reply to: Different spellings of Machamer by Tony Micenhamer of 81

Tony, the spellings I've come across run like this: Mockmer, Maggemer, Magmer, Mocqmer, Mockamer, Machmer, Machemer, Machemor, Mackamer. All are phonetic variations.

In the north, the name is pronounced differently than in the south.

I looked at Messemer briefly, but no connection. Your spelling is one I'm not familiar with. Where does your family come from?
