The German surname Neu simply means "new." It is likely that the name was first given as a nickname to a newcomer to an area, and was passed down as a hereditary surname to the original bearer's descendants.

Neu Early Origins



The surname Neu was first found in various regions of Germany. Due to its nickname origins, it is likely that the name emerged independently as a surname in many different places, creating several original branches of the Neu family, each of which played an important role in the development of medieval society.
