Origins Available: German-Alt, German


Similar to many Austrian family names, the distinguished surname Koepe is a proud sign of a rich and ancient ancestry. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Austria were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. The surname Koepe is derived from the Hebrew personal name Jacob, meaning supplanter.

Koepe Early Origins



The surname Koepe was first found in Austria, where the family rose to prominence early in the mediaeval era. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
