The surname Bricker was first found in Silesia, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society. The name is said to derive from Saint Briccius.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Brix, Bricks, Bricker, Brickert, Brixe, Brixen, Brixel and many more.
