Origins Available: German, Jewish


The roots of the distinguished German surname Kitzmann lie in the kingdom of Bavaria. The name is comprised of two elements: "Kitz," a pet form of the personal name "Gizo," and "miller," the Bavarian form of the German word "müller," meaning "miller." The name Kitzmann or Kitzmüller was probably originally borne by a miller who was called Kitz.

Kitzmann Early Origins



The surname Kitzmann was first found in milling villages, where it is likely that the name first emerged. It is believed that the first bearer of the name Kitzmann was a miller known as Kitz. The name was then passed down as a hereditary surname, eventually becoming widespread throughout the region of Bavaria. The young Kitzmann family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval Bavarian society.
