Waldbüttelbrunn is divided into three districts:
The original name Büttelbrunn consists of the Old High German verb buddelen and the Old High German word brunno . They mean “foam” and “source”. The place was therefore built on a foaming spring. The personal name Butilo can also be used as a defining word . This would be the first settler at the source. The addition of forest , which does not appear in the dialect name "Bidlbrunn", distinguishes the place from the nearby Gaubüttelbrunn .
Earlier spellings of the place from various historical maps and documents:
The first written mention of the place comes from the year 748 as Büttelbrunn . At that time, the place name appeared in connection with a donation from the Knights' Monastery of St. Burkhard.
As part of the Hochstift Würzburg, which belonged to the Franconian Empire , Waldbüttelbrunn was secularized in 1803 in favor of Bavaria and in the Peace of Pressburg (1805) left to Archduke Ferdinand of Tuscany to form the Grand Duchy of Würzburg, with which it finally fell to Bavaria in 1814. In the course of the administrative reforms in Bavaria, today's municipality was created with the municipal edict of 1818.
In 1866 one of the last skirmishes of the German War took place in the area of Waldbüttelbrunn and in 1998 the community celebrated its 1250th anniversary.
