The roots of the distinguished German surname Klumpp lie in the former duchy of Swabia. The name is of nickname origin, and means "lump" or "clumsy, crude, fat person." The name was most likely initially bestowed as a nickname on someone who possessed these characteristics, or in an ironic way on someone who possessed the opposite characteristics, and the name then evolved from nickname to surname.

Klumpp Early Origins



The surname Klumpp was first found in Swabia, where it most likely first emerged. The earliest known bearer of the name was Dilmann dictus Clump, who was a resident of the Swabian town of Hargarten in 1297.
