The distinguished German surname Quandt is derived from the Middle Low German word "quant," meaning "rogue, joker." It is likely that the name was originally bestowed as a nickname on someone with a penchant for playing practical jokes.

Quandt Early Origins



The surname Quandt was first found in regions of North Germany, particularly the Baltic province of Pomerania, where the ancestral home of the Quandt family is thought to be located. The first known bearer of the name was Gotfried Quant, who was a resident of the city of Rostock in 1284. The young Quandt family figured prominently in the early history of the region, and contributed greatly to the development of Pomeranian society.
