Annotation:

The oral, slang use of the article for surnames is not uniform. North German tends not to use an article, Central German is used inconsistently, and the article tends to be used in South German, Austrian and Swiss idioms.
In the case of article use, the following applies: the "shopkeeper" - for male individuals, the "shopkeeper" in the singular - for female individuals; one and / or a “shopkeeper” for one and / or a member of the “shopkeeper” family and / or the group of named bearers. The plural applies to the family and / or all bearers of the same name. The written, standard language use of surnames is principally without an article.
