Koppenhaver Name Meaning
Probably an altered spelling of German Kobenhauer, an occupational name for a cooper, from Middle High German kope ‘vat’, ‘large barrel’ + hauer ‘chopper’, from hauen ‘to chop’, ‘to make or construct from wood’. Alternatively, it may be a habitational name for someone from Copenhagen (Danish København).
