An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2017


The ancient and distinguished surname Littig 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.

Littig Early Origins



The surname Littig 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 Littig family branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs.
