Did you actually mean kutch or kudzu?


  1. Kutz

    Kutz (Kuts, Kuz, Coots) - is a German surname. The origin of the family name was debated. Some time ago it was considered that this word is thought to be derived from the Middle High German word "kötze" or “kütze”, which means a woven basket (Tragekorb) or a kind of a coarse woolen garment (Oberkleid),. Subsequently, the name was believed to derive from the Old Polish–Lithuanian word "kucina", which means a cudgel looked weapon. However, currently an opinion prevails that etymologically the name “Kutz” is derived from the Old Proto-Germanic word “kūtiō”. According to the «Starling»-linguist's database, this ancient word described the birds of prey, not specified by kind. During the 14-th and 18-th centuries the word passed a number of grammatical transformations from "kūtze" to "kutz", and finally into "kauz",. At present, this word translates from German as "owl". The last name Kutz was previously common in Prussia. In the period of 17 – 20-th century East Prussia was periodically captured by Poland, Germany or The Russian Empire,. Probably for this reason, many Prussian surnames, including “Kutz” spread throughout central and eastern Europe, involving Poland, Ukraine and Russia.
