The Vanpelt surname is occupational in origin. It comes from the Latin word "pellis," meaning "skin" or "hide," and would have originally been born by someone who tanned or sold hides and pelts for a living.

Vanpelt Early Origins



The surname Vanpelt was first found in Holland, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region.

Many of the old Counts of Holland held a family seat in this region, including one of the nations oldest families, in Brederode Castle near Haarlem.
