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


In mediaeval German "lud" meant "fame" and "liut" or "Leute" meant "people" or "folk;" while "her," meant "army." Thus "liut-her" meant "person in the army," while "lud-her" would be a "famous soldier."

Lutheritz Early Origins



The surname Lutheritz was first found in Bavaria, where the family was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
