SURNAME ORIGINS

The name Katz traditionally comes from the Kohen Tzedeq, meaning "priest of justice" or Kohen Tzadok, meaning the name-bearer is of patrilineal descent of the Kohanim sons of Zadok. It has been used 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").
