The distinguished German surname Penz is derived from "Penz," the name of a city located in the Baltic territory of Pomerania. This sort of toponymic surname developed when an individual migrated from one settled area to another, where his new neighbors would often be inclined to refer to him in terms of his place of origin.

Penz Early Origins



The surname Penz was first found in Pomerania, where it originated. It is likely that the progenitor of the name was a native of the city of Pentz who had moved to another city, and was therefore referred to by the name of his hometown.
