The colorful history of Germany provides a glimpse at the oldest origins of the Buckthalle family. The name Buckthalle, which is a local surname, reveals that the original bearer of the name once lived, held land, or was born in this beautiful region. In the Holy Roman Empire, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and after the 12th century, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. When coupled with the German preposition von, which means from or of, local names can indicate that the bearer of the name was an aristocrat. However, in modern times, the von is frequently dropped from the surname.

Buckthalle Early Origins



The surname Buckthalle was first found in Schwarzburg-Sondershausen, where the name Buchthal was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society of early European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs.
