The surname of JUTZ was a Spanish official name meaning 'the judge' one who administered justice, a public officer appointed to hear and try cases in the court of justice. The name was originally derived from the Old French word juge'; it was also a nickname given to a solemn and authoritative person, one thought to behave like a judge.
