Oder Family History
Oder Name Meaning
German: from the river of this name in central Europe, denoting someone who lived on its banks. German (Öder): variant of Eder. Jewish (Ashkenazic): possibly as in 1, or from a western or northeastern Yiddish pronunciation of adar, the name of a month of the Jewish calendar. This is considered a happy time of year mainly because the festival of Purim is celebrated during this month and because Jewish tradition has it that Moses was born in this month.
