The ancient and distinguished German surname Hoffheinz is composed of two elements: "Hof," meaning "farm, estate, or court," and "Heinz," a diminutive of "Heinrich." Thus, it is likely that the progenitor of the surname was someone who lived on the estate or farm of a man known as Heinz.

Hoffheinz Early Origins



The surname Hoffheinz was first found in Hessen, where the ancestral home of the family is thought to be located. The young Hoffheinz family played a major role in the early history of the region, and contributed greatly to the development of medieval Hessian society.
