The distinguished German surname Haufe is of two possible origins. Firstly, it is derived from the Middle High German word "hufe," meaning "heap, pile," indicating a pile of stones acting as a border mark; in this instance, the original bearer of the name would have been someone living by such a place. Alternatively, the name may be derived from the Middle High German word "harsch," meaning "army, camp followers," and was probably initially borne by a member or leader of such a group.

Haufe Early Origins



The surname Haufe was first found in Swabia, where the earliest records of the name have been found in documents dating back to the 16th century. The first known bearer of the name was Johann Hieffelin, who was a resident of the city of Ellwangen in the year 1507. The young Haufe family played an important role in the early history of the region, and was instrumental in the development of medieval Swabian society.
