    Name Meaning

    Swiss German: topographic name for someone living on or near a peak or summit, from Kipf ‘edge, verge, point’.

    German: from a derivative of the personal name Giebfried, from Old High German geba ‘gift’ + fridu ‘protection, peace’.

    South German: from the dialect word Kipf or Kipferl ‘croissant, crescent-shaped roll’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a baker or pâtissier.
