Meaning of Immel, please
I have done some searching, but I can't find anything that is spelled the same way, Himmel was the closest I could come to, and that means heaven. I am of German descent.

Hi Iguana,

Immel is a German surname. It's a form of the surname Imme (the -l at the end is a diminutive ending in southern Germany) which comes from Old German female first names starting with Irm- (like Irmgard, Irmhild, Irmtraud etc.). The prefix irm comes from the Old High German word 'irmin' which means 'big, mighty, powerful, grand...'.

Regards, Judith
