The roots of the distinguished German surname Tiertorffer lie in the western region of the Rhineland. The name is derived from "Dierdorf," the name of a town located near Koblenz, which is itself derived from "tier," meaning "animal," and "dorf," meaning "village."

Tiertorffer Early Origins



The surname Tiertorffer was first found in the Rhineland, where the town of Dierdorf is located. It was common during this period to refer to a new resident of a city by the name of his hometown; thus, it is likely that the original bearer of the name was a native of Dierdorf who had moved somewhere else. The young Tiertorffer family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval German society.
