Origins Available: German, Italian


The German surname Panza was derived from the Middle High German word "panzier," which means "mail-coat;" as such, it was likely an occupational name for an armorer.

Panza Early Origins



The surname Panza was first found in Westphalia, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families in the western region. From the 13th century onwards the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
