Das History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The German surname Das 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. Das 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.

Early Origins of the Das family


The surname Das was first found in the various regions of Germany, and Das began to emerge as a surname. The first instances of Das 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.
