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.

Mumme Early Origins



The surname Mumme was first found in various cities in northern Germany, where the earliest instances of the name were recorded. The first known bearer was Nikolas Mumme, who lived in Hamburg from 1290 to 1305. The young Mumme family was an integral part of the society of the region, playing a crucial role in its development during the early Middle Ages.
