Origins Available: English, German


The ancient and distinguished surname Litteral is probably derived from a Slavic personal name such as "Litomir," "Litoslav," or "Litobor." These names are all derived from the Old Slavic "ljutu," meaning "wild" or "grim." Alternatively, the name may be derived from "Littau," the name of a town in Moravia. In this case, it is likely that the progenitor of the name was a native of Littau who had settled in another region.

Litteral Early Origins



The surname Litteral was first found in Silesia, where they contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation and would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years, the Litteral family branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs.
