Weltz Coat of Arms / Weltz Family Crest

The associated coat of arms for this name are recorded in J.B Rietstaps Armorial General. Illustrated by V & H.V Rolland's. This Monumental work took 23 years to complete and 85,000 coats of Arms are included in this work. This German surname of WELTZ was from a Germanic personal name composed of the elements WALD (rule) + HARI (army), introduced into England by the Normans in 1066 in the form WALTIER. Other spellings of the name include WALTHER, WELTER, WOLTER, WOLDER, WOHLDERT, WAUTER, WALTZ, WALZEL, WALTI and WELTI to name but a few. Surnames are divided into four categories, from occupations, nicknames, baptismal and locational. All the main types of these are found in German-speaking areas, and names derived from occupations and from nicknames are particularly common. A number of these are Jewish. Patronymic surnames are derived from vernacular Germanic given names, often honouring Christian saints. Regional and ethnic names are also common. The German preposition 'von (from) or 'of', used with habitation names, is taken as a mark of aristocracy, and usually denoted proprietorship of the village or estate from where they came. Some members of the nobility affected the form VON UND ZU with their titles. In eastern Germany there was a heavy influence both from and on neighbouring Slavonic languages. Many Prussian surnames are of Slavonic origin. A notable member of the name was Vogelweide von der WALTHER (circa. 1170-1230) the German minnesinger. He was the greatest of German lyric poets, and became court minstrel to the emperor Frederick II, who rewarded him with an estate. As well as songs, he wrote maxims which have a strong political flavour. He enriched the art of the troubadour by introducing into his songs not only the conventional gallantries of courtly love, but the more natural affections of the less high-born. The lion depicted in the arms is the noblest of all wild beasts which is made to be the emblem of strength and valour, and is on that account the most frequently borne in Coat-Armour.
