The Artz surname comes from the Middle High German word "arzet," which meant "a physician." It came into being as a family name in the 1300s, and was generally taken on not by full-time doctors, but by someone who practiced the healing arts.

Artz Early Origins



The surname Artz was first found in Tyrol, where the name Arz became noted for its many branches with the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. Over time, the family became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility.
