The ancient and distinguished German surname Knoop is derived from "Knoop," the name of a town in the northern region of Schleswig-Holstein. This place name can be literally translated as "hilly land." Alternatively, the name may be a Low German variation of "Knopf," a surname that developed from a nickname meaning "short, chubby fellow."

Knoop Early Origins



The surname Knoop was first found in Schleswig-Holstein, where the name is thought to have originated. It was a common practice of the time to refer to a new resident of a city by the name of his hometown; thus, it is likely that the progenitor of the name Knoop was a native of Knoop who had settled in another city. The young Knoop family played a major role in the early history of the region, and contributed greatly to the development of the medieval society of Schleswig-Holstein.
