The digital phone directory lists 184 KAMPRADs in Germany which means there may be around 500 - 600.KAMPFRAD appears 5 (> 15) times, CAMPRAD 4 (> 12) times.Neither of these names appear in any of my books. So my guess would be:KAMPF (fight, battle) + RAD (counsil)or (less likely): KAMP (field, camp) + RADKAMPF is unusual in a personal name, but maybe it has replaced an older GUND or WIG. I don't know.
I hope this is a little helpful.
