The ancient and distinguished German surname Knuttarr is derived from the Middle High German "knüttel," meaning "short, thick cudgel." Accordingly, Knuttarr is an occupational name or a trade name for someone who made clubs for war.

Knuttarr Early Origins



The surname Knuttarr was first found in the northern part of Swabia, where it is thought to have originated. The nickname origins of the name make it likely that several different branches of the Knuttarr family emerged independently during the Middle Ages. The young Knuttarr family played an important role in the early history of the region, and contributed greatly to the development of medieval Swabian society.
