The German name Flesch and its variants has most likely evolved from the Low German word "flesch," which means "meat." It may have been an occupational name for a butcher, or it may have evolved from a nickname.

Flesch Early Origins



The surname Flesch was first found in Swabia, where it is thought to have first emerged. The first known bearer of the name was Johann Flesche, who was a resident of Rappoltsweiler, Alsace in 1389. The young Flesch family played a major role in the early history of the region, and contributed greatly to the development of medieval Swabian society.
