The roots of the distinguished surname Nida lie in the region of Hessen. The name is of two possible origins; firstly, it is derived from the place name "Nied," a town on the Nidda river near Höchst on the Main. In this instance, the name would have been originally borne by someone who hailed from this region. Alternatively, the name is derived from the Middle High German word "niet," meaning "zealous, eager, enthusiastic"; in this case, the name was likely originally bestowed as a nickname, subsequently becoming a surname.

Nida Early Origins



The surname Nida was first found in Hessen, where it first emerged. The earliest known bearer of the name was Joh. von Nied de Nyde, who was recorded in Mainz in 1380. The young Nida family was instrumental during this early period, playing a crucial role in the development of medieval German society.
