Origins Available: German-Alt, German


The name Berchman is derived from the Low German word "berke," or "birke" which means "birch." Thus it is assumed that the first bearers of the Berchman family name originally lived near birch trees.

Berchman Early Origins



The surname Berchman was first found in Hamburg, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name Berchmann became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.
