For whatever it is worth my last name of Suphan (note the H) was extant in Bad Frankenhausen, Germany since at least the 1700's. They were mostly blacksmiths with the profession being handed down by the guild system. Since many names were handed down phonetically I don't know if this relates to Suppan. We pronounce our name as Su - fahn with the emphasis on the second syllable.
