The German name Seiter comes from the historic region of Austria. The name itself is derived from the Middle High German word "suter," and is an occupational name for a shoemaker or cobbler.

Seiter Early Origins



The surname Seiter was first found in Austria, where bearers of this surname have been prominent contributors to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the family name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.
