The German surname Stutts is thought to derive from a Southern German word "stutz," meaning "a steep cliff;" thus as a name it was likely originally used for someone who lived near a steep cliff. There is also a Middle High German word "stutz," meanings "pushy." Names evolving from this meaning, the name would have been initially given as nicknames.
