Corte History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, German, Italian, Spanish


The roots of the distinguished German Corte lie in the northern region of Schleswig-Holstein. There are two possible origins for this name. Firstly, Corte is derived from the personal name "Konrad," a very popular name in Germany during the Middle Ages; in this instance, the name Corte would mean "son of Konrad." Alternatively, the name could derive from the Low German word "kort," meaning "short." In this instance, it is likely that the name was bestowed as a nickname upon the original bearer, probably a short person, who then passed it down to his descendants as a surname.

Early Origins of the Corte family


The surname Corte was first found in the city of Hamburg, where the surname is believed to have first emerged. Johannes dictus Curt, living in Hamburg in 1297, is the earliest known bearer of the name. The young Corte family was instrumental during this early period, playing an important role in the development of the society of Schleswig-Holstein.
