The surname Tschupp was first found in Silesia, where the name gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates such as the Alsace (France) and Canton of Grison (Switzerland).
The name is freqently used in the German part of Switzerland and is believed to have its origin from Middle High German jop(p)e, juppe ‘jacket’ (schōpe, schoppe), a loanword from Italian g(i)ubba, perhaps a metonymic occupational name for a jacket maker, or a nickname for someone who wore jackets that were remarkable. Germanized form of Slovenian Čop
