Von Schelling, Schelling
Von Schelling (pronounced "Faun Schelling") is a German name. Many Von Schelling surnames were changed from the original spelling to the more simplified version “Schelling”. Von is translated to the English word "of" hence the original meaning designated an aristocratic blood-line or even a place in Germany from which one was born (if the land was owned by the bearer of the surname). The most common form of the surname is the simplified spelling Schelling, especially in the USA.
