Origins Available: German-Alt, German


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

Berckman Early Origins



The surname Berckman 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.
