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

Knutten Early Origins



The surname Knutten 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 Knutten family emerged independently during the Middle Ages. The young Knutten family played an important role in the early history of the region, and contributed greatly to the development of medieval Swabian society.
