The Späth surname is derived from the Middle High German word "späth," meaning "late;" thus it is supposed that it may have evolved from a nickname for a tardy person.

Späth Early Origins



The surname Späth was first found in Bavaria, where the name Spaeth 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.
