The distinguished German surname Mumme comes from Friesland, now a district of Lower Saxony. The name is derived from the Germanic personal name "Mumma," now found only in Friesland, and means "son of Mumma." Alternatively, the name may be derived from the Germanic word "mumm," meaning "to mutter." In this instance, the name would have been originally bestowed as a nickname, most likely in the region of Swabia, where the spelling "Mumme" is most common.
