Random information on the term “KATZ”:

Katz is a common German and Ashkenazi surname.

Germans with the last name Katz may originate in the Rhine River region of Germany, where the Katz Castle is located. (The name of the castle does not derive from Katze, “cat”, but from Katzenelnbogen, going back to Latin Cattimelibocus, consisting of the ancient Germanic tribal names of the Chatti and Melibokus.)

Where it is a Jewish surname, Katz is an abbreviation (Hebrew: כּ״ץ‎) formed from the initials of the term Kohen Tzedeq (“priest of justice”/”authentic priest”) or Kohen Tzadok (meaning the name-bearer is of patrilineal descent of the Kohanim sons of Zadok). It has been used since the seventeenth century, or perhaps somewhat earlier, as an epithet of the descendants of Aaron. The collocation is most likely derived from Melchizedek (“king of righteousness”), who is called “the priest (kohen) of the most high God” (Genesis xiv. 18), or perhaps from Psalm cxxxii. 9: “Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness (tzedeq)”. The use of the abbreviated and Germanicized Katz likely coincided with the imposition of German names on Jews in Germany in the 18th or 19th centuries.
