The history of the Barthe family name begins in the German province of Bavaria. Barthe is a nickname surname, a class of German names derived from "eke-names," or added names, that described people by a personal characteristic or other attribute. Barthe is a name for a bearded person, derived from the old German word "Bardo," which means "bearded one." Barthe, a variant of the name, is a French local name for someone who lived on a piece of land overgrown with bushes or shrub.
