Wampfler or Wampler?

+7 votes

MatchBot proposed a merge of orphaned profiles that have different spellings for the last name. They are duplicates, and I think Wampfler is the right one, but I'm not sure. Neither profile has a manager or any helpful info, although the trees for both show Switzerland for most of their ancestors (and Wampfler mostly too, which is why I protected Wampfler-14).

1683 seems a bit too early for dropping the "f", but I've not worked with Swiss names before.

Anyone interested in adopting these guys?

Isn't Waeffler and Waffler also connected to them some how? I have all four last names in my family tree all from Switzerland.
