Many cultural groups lived in the German states in medieval times. Each had its own dialect and traditions, and unique variations of popular names. Low German, which is similar to contemporary Dutch, was spoken in Westphalia. German names are characterized by additions such as regional suffixes and phrases that tell something about the origin or background of its original bearer. Further contributing to the variation in German names was the fact that there were no spelling rules in medieval times: scribes recorded names according to their sound. The recorded spelling variations of Diple include Dippel, Dipple, Dippold, Diple, Dippal, Dippele, Dippell, Dippall, Dippelt, Dipolt, Dippoldt, Diepel and many more.

First found in Bavaria, where the family could be considered to make a great early contribution to the feudal society which gradually formed the backbone Europe. The name became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the savage tribal and national conflicts, each group seeking power and status in an ever changing territorial profile.
