The distinguished surname Hotz is of German origin. It is derived from the German personal name "Hotz," which is itself derived from the Middle High German verb "hotzen," meaning "to run fast." It is likely that the surname was originally borne by the son of someone named Hotz.

Hotz Early Origins



The surname Hotz was first found in the Tauber area, where it originally emerged as a personal name during the early 11th century. The earliest known instance of Hotz as a surname occurred in 1221, when Conrad Huzzo was recorded to be living in Würzburg. The young Hotz family was instrumental in the formation of Bavarian society in the early Middle Ages.
