Pitzer Name Meaning
South German (Bavaria): probably from pitz ‘corner’, ‘peak’ + -er, suffix of habitation, hence a topographic name for someone living near such a feature in mountainous country. North German: perhaps a metonymic occupational name for a seal maker or die sinker, from Middle Low German pitzer ‘seal’.
