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


The Hofen surname is derived from the Middle High German word "oven," meaning an oven; and as such the name was probably originally an occupational name for a baker, or someone who made or used ovens.

Hofen Early Origins



The surname Hofen was first found in Brunswick, where the name Offner 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.
