The German surname Dach is derived from the Old German word "dachs" or "dahs," meaning "badger." The name was probably given as a nickname to someone who resembled a badger in some way, perhaps with a streak of white in dark hair or with nocturnal habits. Dach was likely passed down as a surname to the descendants of a bearer of the nickname, perhaps as early as the twelfth century, when Germany first began to pass down hereditary surnames.

Dach Early Origins



The surname Dach was first found in the various regions of Germany, and Dach began to emerge as a surname. The first instances of Dach as a surname most likely occurred towards the end of the twelfth century, when surnames began to be passed down through a family line in Germany.
