Where did the Czech Lipschitz family come from? What is the Czech Lipschitz family crest and coat of arms? When did the Lipschitz family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Lipschitz family history?The distinguished surname Lipschitz is of several possible origins, all of which can be traced back to a common root. The name is derived from the Slavic "lipa," meaning "linden tree" or "lime tree." The name may relate to a number of different place names: "Liebeschitz," the name of a town in Bohemia, "Leipzig," the name of a famous German city, or "Leobschutz," the name of a town in Upper Silesia.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Lipschitz, Lippschitz, Lipshitz, Lippshitz, Lipshits, Lippshits and many more.
First found in Bohemia, where the town of Liebeschitz is located. It was a common practice of the time to refer to a new resident of a city by the name of his hometown; thus, it is likely that the progenitor of the name was a native of this town (or, alternatively, of Leipzig or Leobschutz) who had settled in another city. The young Lipschitz family was played a major role in the early history of this region, and was instrumental in the development of medieval society.
