Similar to many Austrian family names, the distinguished surname Koepe is a proud sign of a rich and ancient ancestry.

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.
