Origins Available: Dutch, German


The surname Voll appears to be of patronymic origin, that is, a surname derived from the first name of the father or other ancestor of the eponymous bearer. It is based on the Germanic personal name Volz, which was very popular in former times, and simply means "son or descendant of Volz or Folz." Its etymology may be traced to the German word "volk," meaning "people," or "folk." Like many of the old Germanic personal names, its exact significance as a name is unclear; however, it was often used as an element in a compound name such as Vol(k)mar, or Vollbert.

The surname Voll was first found in the regions of the Rhineland-Palatinate and also further south to the area near Wurttemberg, where the ancestors of those bearing the name Voll contributed to the feudal society of the early Middle Ages. Early records of the surname are found in the city of Worms, where one Johann filius quandam Volzonis was a citizen in 1316 (Urkunden zur hessischen Landes, Orts, Familiengeschichte, II-601). A record of one Wernherus Voltzo can be found earlier still, in 1226 (Wurttembergisches Urkundenbuch, III-188).
