What is the origin of Closs, German or British?

What I preoupa is the origin of our surname in some sites says it is German, but evidence that would be of Celtic origin, are remarkable, considering that two archaeological sites, one in Ayrshire in Scotland U.K. and one in the Nant Perris Wales U.K., show that the name is much older than the sites of heraldry research suggests. A tomb in the village of Perris Nan't dated from the year 705 AD marks the beginning of the Christian phase of Closs, and the foundation of this town for a family member and the Castle Centre, Castle in Celtic called Pentre. The lion and the colors blue and white in some variations of the coat of arms Closs, indicate the origin of the surname in Scotland. Other research also indicates that Closs, spelled with a "C" appear only in Germany, by the end of the fifteenth century at the height of the Protestant Reformation and Catholic reactions. Other reports say that the South would Closs of Germany in Ortenburgh, but does not explain why the spelling to "C" in German when the same sound should be written and recorded by notaries and registry offices and even churches baptisteries with "K "proper names, according to the rules of spelling in German.
