The ancient roots of the Beuchberger family are found in the German state of Bavaria. Beuchberger was a local name, for someone who lived in Bavaria. The surname Beuchberger is composed of the two elements Buch and Berg, which are also surnames themselves. The portion Buch is a local surname that is derived from the German word buohe, which means beech tree. This name was given to a person who lived by a beech tree, a beech wood, or a beech grove. The name Buchholz, which means beech grove, is also the name of several places in Germany. Beuchberger is also traceable to the German towns named Buch and Buchenwald and natives of these towns often adopted the name as their own.
