Origins Available: German-Alt, German, Swiss


The Dittrich surname derives from the Germanic personal name Tederich (Theudoricus), which was composed of the elements "theud," meaning "people," or "race," and "ric," meaning "powerful."

Dittrich Early Origins



The surname Dittrich was first found in Switzerland, where the name Dietrich emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. The popularity of the name can be traced back to the major figure of Theodrich the Great, King of the Goths in the 5th century. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
