Where did the German Danz family come from? When did the Danz family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Danz family history?The Danz surname was a habitational name, taken on from the place name Danzig, on the Baltic Sea, in present day Poland. As Danzig was a busy port city, the name may have been acquired by merchants who then took the name with them on their travels, as well by people who were born there and moved away.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Danzig, Danziger, Dantzen, Danzer, Danzinger, Dansigger, Dantzig, Dansinger, Danninger, Dantziger and many more.
First found in West Prussia, where the name Danzinger was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
