The roots of the distinguished surname Baltus lie in Austria. The name derives itself from "Balthasar," the name of one of the three Magi who followed the star to Bethlehem, and was popular as both a first name and a family name during the 18th century.

Baltus Early Origins



The surname Baltus was first found in Austria, where the name Baltheser was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area.The Baldus, Baldes and Baldes were originally pet forms of the variant Balthasar which was the local patron saint and were often found in Rhineland.
