The Blatz surname comes from the German word "plötz," a type of fish. As such, the surname may have evolved from a nickname for someone thought to resemble the fish, or as an occupational name for someone who caught or sold these fish.

Blatz Early Origins



The surname Blatz was first found in Saxony, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.
