The surname Itter is toponymic, that is, it is derived from the name of the place where the original bearer once lived or held land. In this case, Itter comes from the river and place name Itter, which is near Waldreck in Hesse. The name was often preceded by "von" which was a privilege and symbol of nobility.

Itter Early Origins



The surname Itter was first found in Hesse, where the name was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would shape European history. The name would emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs. Early mentions of the name include Anton Itter a headmaster from 1659 to 1677, Johann Christian Itter (1654-1699,) a state secretary, and Johann Wilhelm Itter (d.1725,) a jurist.
