Kittner is an ancient Anglo-Saxon surname that came from the name Christopher, where Kitt is a pet form. The name Kittner is a diminutive, which is an expression relating to smallness in size or endearment, of the name. The most common diminutive suffixes are ot, et, un, in, el. Double diminutives are also formed from these suffixes, such as Hamelin, Roblett, Adnett, or Turkentine.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Kittner or a variant listed above:
