Origin: Spangenberg is a 'name of origin,' relating to the town of Spangenberg, southeast of Kassel in Central Germany. In the Middle Ages, people started leaving the small villages of their birth and moving to towns. When they arrived in the towns all they were known by was their Chirstian name - Hans, Fritz, Klaus, etc. However, there were a lot of people named Hans and Fritz and Klaus. To differentiate from one another, they took their birth town as their surname. For example, Hans von Spangenberg. The 'von' indicates 'from.' Eventually, the 'von' was dropped from the name.

Origin of Vo, Meaning of Vo

Origin: In George F. Jones book it says "TTER" means "Dweller on the ETT (river)" or "Dweller in a wattled enclosure."
I have had cnfirmed by three people fom Schweiz, Austria and Baden-Wurttemberg, that Etter means this.
1.) The word Etter comes from the Alemans. It was the name of the Bounds, Fences of her Village. The villages of the Alemans was enclosed by "Palisades" witch was called etter.
Daniel Etter
Schweiz
2.) "Ethymologisches W?rterbuch der deutschen familiennamen" = "Ethymological dictionary of german familynames". according to this book there are 2 possibilities. A: the name based on the old fences (as we already have discussed) B: the name based on the old alemannic word of Etter which means Kinsman.
Alexander Lutz
Austria
3.) ETTER: either is 1) Middle High German "?ter" = village fence,
boundary;
or 2) MHG "etter" = cousin.
ETTERLI(N): Affectionate form for Etter = cousin. Etterli(n) was widely spread in the alemannic region (the -i is typically Swiss). In 1407 there is a Heinzmann ETTERLIN, Vogt (bailiff, administrator) at Istein (L?rrach, near the Swiss border), and in 1441 Anton => ?TTERLI (!), also spelt ETTER- LIN, town scribe in Schaffhausen (Switzerland).
