Meaning & History
Meaning: A German surname specific to the Canton of Glarus in Switzerland, the name means "skill with numbers" "Kund" is a German word/root meaning "skill, ability, knowledge" and the "ert" is the transformed spelling of the root "ratha"--meaning "number" This combination would mimic the etymology of the German word for 100, "hundert," which is composed of the roots "hund" =100 and "ratha" meaning "number."Note: Although I have seen one reference to "kundert" being a cognate of the German word "Konrad," I tend to doubt that connection for the specific reason that almost none of the other cognates have that "d" in the middle (other cognates being Kunrad, Kuhnert, Kunert, Kuhnhardt Kuhnt, and Kurth).
