In Reply to: Copp Family by David COPP of 576

David, there is lots of information about the origins of our name on this geneology forum, but basically it comes from the German word Kopf(head) meaning head of a group or clan or possibly people called Copp had large heads or were very clever and/ or lived at the tops of hills!
I am also researching the name and trying to make contact with anyone called Copp in Devon or Cornwall. have no information about French Copps though sorry.
