Possible derivations for the Barsch surname include the Middle High German word "bars," meaning "a perch;" thus the name may have been a nickname for someone thought to resemble a fish in some way, or a metonymic occupational name for a fish dealer or fisherman. Or, the name may come from the Low German word "barsch," meaning "harsh," or "rude." In this case, the name would have been a nickname, which became a surname.

Barsch Early Origins



The surname Barsch was first found in Mecklenburg, where the name could be considered to make a great early contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of early development of Europe. The name became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the complex national conflicts, as each group sought power and status in an ever-changing territorial profile.
