Dear Mary,
The theory of von der Ropp is not a fairy tale. It is an old aristocratic family. Some of the members have the German "von" and some the "van" which is I believe is Austrian (I could be mistaken). It means the same thing.
Type vonderRopp on a general search engine and you will get a lot of information - some in English and some in German. Incidentally, one of my family members was married to a Lucy von der Ropp.
Good Luck.
