Spatz History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Spatz surname is derived from the Old High German "sparo," meaning a "sparrow;" as such, it is thought to have originally been a nickname for someone thought to resemble a sparrow in some way.


Early Origins of the Spatz family


The surname Spatz was first found in Bavaria, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power. They were originally seated at Nuremburg.
