Coors Surname History

According to one Coors family researcher, the Coors family name may be of western Slavic derivation - from "Khors", a solar diety. That name, as is true of others in the Slav pantheon, is cognate with proto-Iranian: "khvar" for sun. A parallel development of the Indo-European word stem leads to the English "core".  Western Slavs inhabited Pomerania and spread eastward with the growth of the Prussian Empire, establishing an epicenter around Cologne, from which Germans with the Coors and Coorssen surname migrated to America in the 19th Century. 

According to one researcher, the surname Coors may be of Slavic derivation - from the Slavic word "Khors", a solar diety.  At least one branch of the Coors family is from Germany.  However, the Coors family history has rich origins of which the particulars are just beginning to be understood by Coors family members.
