The roots of the German surname Koppenhoffer lie in the former royal duchy of Swabia, now the modern state of Baden-Wurrtemburg. The name is derived from the German words "kapaun," meaning "capon," a rooster, and "hof," meaning "farm." Thus, it was most likely first borne by someone who lived on a farm where capons were raised.

Koppenhoffer Early Origins



The surname Koppenhoffer was first found in the Baden region, where Zinken Koppenhöfen, the first recorded bearer of the name, was living in 1387. The young Koppenhoffer family was instrumental during these early years, playing an important role in the development of medieval Swabian society.
