Where did the German lasher family come from? What is the German lasher family crest and coat of arms? When did the lasher family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the lasher family history?

The lasher surname is thought to have derived from the Slavic word "litsch," which meant "wild;" as such, it may have originally been a nickname for a wild or unruly person. The surname many also have evolved from any of several places, such as Lisch in Holstein; or Lischau in East Prussia.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Lischer, Lisch, Lischke, Lischka, Lischeid, Lissek, Lissak, Litsch, Litscher, Litschke, Litschka, Litschko, Lischy, Liske, Lisko, Liskov, Liskow and many more.

First found in Austria, where the name became noted for its many branches within the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was enrolled by the princes of the region. In their later history the family became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential name.
