Origins Available: Dutch, German


The Tromp surname may be derived from the Middle High German word "trumpe," meaning "drum." Or, it may come from the place name, Trampe in Uckermark, a district in present day Brandenburg, but which was claimed by Pomerania in medieval times.

Tromp Early Origins



The surname Tromp was first found in Mecklenburg and Pomerania, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation, and would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. There is an early record of Willeke (von) Tramp, a Pomeranian knight, in 1280. Over time, the family name branched into other houses, where their influence continued to be felt because of the important role they played in the local social and political affairs.
