The roots of the distinguished German surname Flicker lie in the former duchy of Swabia. The name derives from the Middle High German word "vlicken," meaning "to patch," and was most likely originally borne by someone who patched shoes or fabric.

Flicker Early Origins



The surname Flicker was first found in the duchy of Swabia. Martin Fluekk was one of the earliest recorded bearers of the name, residing in the city of Überlingen in 1294. The young Flicker family was instrumental during this early period, playing an important role in the development of the region's society.
