The German surname Utterback has several possible origins, but they can all be traced back to the kingdom of Bavaria, located in the southern part of Germany. The name may be derived from a place name, such as "Usterbach," a town near the Bavarian city of Augsburg, or "Otterbach," the name of several German towns, and would in this case refer to someone who came from one of these places. Alternatively, the name may be derived from the German words "uter," meaning "coming from," and "Bach," meaning "stream." In this case, the name would have been originally borne by someone living close to a stream. Finally, the name may be derived from the personal name "Utters;" in this instance, the name would mean "son of Utters."

Utterback Early Origins



The surname Utterback was first found in the town of Armorbach, where Erkinbertus dictus de Ottirbach, the first recorded bearer of the name, was living in 1298. Another early instance of the name dates back to 1323, when a butcher named Usterpach was residing in Augsburg.
