The roots of the distinguished surname Quastt lie in the region of Pomerania. The name literally means "whisk" or "frond," and was used to indicate the bathhouse operator, whose duty it was to rub the bathers with a "quast." Alternatively, the name Quastt may be derived from "Quast," the name of a city located in Mecklenburg. In this case, the name would have been initially borne by someone who hailed from this city.

Quastt Early Origins



The surname Quastt was first found in North Germany, where it is thought to have originated. The earliest known bearer of the name was Arnold Quast, who was a citizen of Rostock in 1314. The young Quastt family was a major contributor during this early period, playing a crucial role in the development of medieval German society.
