Origin: Earliest appearance of the SULOUFF surname is in the 1783 tax record for Brecknock Twp., Berks Co. Pa., where it is spelled SULOUF. Prior to that time it was spelled ZULAUF or ZULAUFF, and it was brought to America by a Hessian soldier named Johannes ZULAUF who arrived at Staten Island 15 August 1776. The surname ZULAUF is the German noun 'crowd' or 'throng' and the German verb 'run to.' The surname went through slightly variant spellings in Berks Co. and York Co. Pa. between 1783 and 1802, and finally it settled to the spelling SULOUFF in Mifflin (now Juniata) Co. after 1802. Two sons continued using the spelling SULOUFF while two sons simplified the surname to SULOFF. These two spellings continue among descendants to this day (January 2005).

Origin: Origin of SULOFF in Pennsylvania derives from ZULAUF, the surname of a Hessian soldier who arrived in America in 1776. In 1779 he became a POW in Reading Pa. First change of spelling for his surname to SULOUF is found in tax record for Robeson Twp., Berks Co. PA in 1783. First change of spelling among descendants to SULOFF is found in Mifflin Co. (now Juniata Co.) about 1840. Original meaning of ZULAUF is German word for "run together" or "run toward" and possibly is a place-related surname based upon conjunction of a trail or juncture of streams in the province of Hesse-Cassel (now Germany).
