=========================================

'Reb' is an honorific; it does not mean rabbi.

"Yudel" can be a nickname for the Hebrew name Yehuda.

And you may be correct, that when family names became mandatory, this name, Yudel, was used as a basis for the last name. The name may have recurred in the family for a number of generations.
