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
name for a butcher, or it may have evolved from a nickname.
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.
