Family name origins & meanings

  • English : unexplained. Perhaps a respelling of Bunts.
  • Probably an altered spelling of Swiss German Bunz or Bünz, from Alemannic bunz ‘little barrel’, hence a nickname for a short fat man, or of German Banz, or from pet form of an Old High German personal name Bun(n)o, of unexplained etymology.
