Where did the German Toth family come from? What is the German Toth family crest and coat of arms? When did the Toth family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Toth family history?

The Toth surname is thought to be independently derived from the Middle High German words "toto," meaning "death," or "tote," meaning "godfather." In either instance, the name was probably a nickname, which later became a hereditary surname.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Toth, Tott, Todt and others.

First found in Germany, where the name Toth came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as numerous branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some of which were located in other countries, most notably in Sweden. Through the acquisition of these estates as well as their important contributions to society, the family successfully elevated their social status.
