The surname Fix and its many variants can be found today in many countries, including England, Holland, and Ireland, but its origins lie in the Saxony region of Germany. The name was first derived as a diminutive of the first name Friedrich, which was itself derived from the Old High German words "Fridu," meaning "peace," and "Rihhi," meaning "power."

Fix Early Origins



The surname Fix was first found in cities in the Saxony region, where Fix was first used as a surname. The use of the diminutive as a personal name was first recorded in Lüneburg, where Ficko de Wesera lived in 1352.
