Bitler Name Meaning
German: from an agent derivative of Middle High German bitelen ‘to ask or solicit’, hence a nickname or occupational name for a suitor, a bidder, or intermediary; later it became confused with Bettler ‘beggar’ (an agent derivative of betelen ‘to beg’) and the two words were used synonymously.
