The ancient surname Gatz is thought to be East German-Slavic in origin. It is most likely derived from a personal name, such as "Gaczko" or "Gadafrid." The progenitor of the name was probably the son of someone who was known as Gatz.

Gatz Early Origins



The surname Gatz was first found in East Germany, in the regions of Silesia, Prussia, and Pomerania, where the name is thought to have originated. The personal name Gaczko could be found in Breslau in 1328; it is therefore likely that the surname Gatz emerged in this region shortly thereafter. The young Gatz family was instrumental during this formative period, figuring prominently in the early history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of medieval German society.
