References for the German surname 'Dippel' can be found in documents dating back to the fifteenth century.  One Dippel was a resident of the town of Zwehren, which is located in the county of Kassel, in the year 1490. 

The surname Dippel is of patronymic origin, deriving from the name of the father of the original bearer.  In this instance, the surname Dippel derives from the German personal name Theudobald (Theobald) which in turn derives from the Gothic "thiuda" , the Old High German "dint" and the Middle High German "diet" meaning "people, nation".  The element "Theuda" could also derive from the Greek meaning "God".  The element "bald" derives from the Gothic "balths" the Old High German "bald" and the Middle High German "balt" meaning "courageous" and also "bright". 

The name Dippel as a variant of Theobald is especially common in the Bavaria region of Germany.  Notable bearers of the name Theobald include the Theudobald the King of the Merovingian-Franks in the sixth century.  Saint Theobald of Provins who lived in the eleventh century in the region of the Champagne of France was especially admired in southwestern Germany and the Alsace region of France.
