Sapp Family HistoryThis can best be described as an Anglo-Saxon surname of confused origins. It is believed to be recorded as Sap, Sapp, the diminutives Sapell, Sappell, Seppell, Sippell, Zipfell, patronymics Sappas, Sappes, Sapson, (English), Sapp, Sapper, Zapp, Zapper, Zipp, Zippe, diminutives Zappel, Zipple(German), and others. According to one of the dictionaries of Germanic surnames, it is said to originate from the pre 5th century word "sache" meaning "legal action," which may suggest that name holders were early lawyers, although we have no proof of this.
