Name Meaning

North German: from Middle Low German kip ‘bundle (e.g. of hides or flax)’, hence probably applied as a metonymic occupational name for a fur trader, for example.

North German and Dutch: from a short form of the old personal name Gebolf, composed of the ancient Germanic elements geb ‘gift’ + wolf ‘wolf’. Compare Kip 1.

German: topographic name for someone living on a hill, from Kippe ‘edge, brink’.
