Wulff is a Germanic family surname mostly thought to originate from the Schleswig-Holstein area of Germany directly south of the modern-day border with Denmark. Other spelling variations of wolf used as surnames are not necessarily identified with this region as Wulff is. Many descendants with this last name reside in Denmark, Germany, and the United States among other places where Germans and Danes have immigrated. Ancestors were of Catholic, Protestant and Jewish faiths. The name is a derivation of wolf, spelled and pronounced the same in Old German as in modern German and English. Jewish ancestors with the surname of Wulff may have associated it with the Hebrew first name, Benjamin which is associated with the wolf.
