Possible derivations for the Bartch 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.

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.
