The ancient and distinguished German surname Kluth is derived from the old Germanic term "Klotz," meaning "awkward, clumsy." The name was most likely initially bestowed as a nickname, either on someone who was clumsy or in an ironic way on someone who was exceptionally graceful.

Early Origins of the Kluth family


The surname Kluth was first found in Hessen, where the family was closely identified in the early period of history with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout Europe. The Kluthes would later emerge as an influential noble family, having many distinguished branches, and well known for their involvement in social, economic and political affairs. The earliest known bearer of the name was Berchtolt Klotz, who is registered in the "Furstenbergisches Urkundenbuch" in 1343.
