An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The distinguished German surname Helmuth is thought to be of patronymic origin, deriving from the name of the father of the original bearer. There are no records that document the use of "Helmuth" as a first name during the Middle Ages; thus, the name is probably derived from the Germanic personal name "Heilmut," which is composed of two elements: the Old High German "heil," meaning "healthy," and the Old High German "muot," meaning "spirit."

Helmuth Early Origins



The surname Helmuth was first found in Saxony, where the ancestral home of the family is thought to be located. The earliest known bearer of the name was Andr. Helmut, who was a bookkeeper from Basel living in Radolfzell in 1478. The young Helmuth family was instrumental during this formative time, figuring prominently in the early history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of medieval German society.
