The distinguished German surname Grope is derived from the Old High German "graban," meaning "to dig." The name was originally used to indicate "a digger of graves or ditches."

Grope Early Origins



The surname Grope was first found in Austria, where in ancient times the Graber family played a significant role within the region's feudal society. The name Grabner became prominent in local affairs and often intermarried with other distinguished families, some of whom played important roles in the territorial conflicts of the period.
