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

Knutter Early Origins



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