Withorn does not appear in "German Names"by Hans Bahlow. However the
following two names do appear.

WITT - frequent lower German = weiß, weiße "white" for a white-haired, fair-
haired person
HORN -found in all areas of the German speaking world; mostly a field or
place name, sometimes a house

Therefore, a possible meaning for WITHORN could be WHITEHOUSE

Hello Werner,
Does the name Withorn mean anything in German. I know some of the family
names have meanings, but I've never been able to find the name Withorn or any
history of the name.
