Gatzka History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The ancient surname Gatzka is thought to be East German-Slavic in origin. It is most likely derived from a personal name, such as "Gaczko" or "Gadafrid." The progenitor of the name was probably the son of someone who was known as Gatz.

Early Origins of the Gatzka family

The surname Gatzka was first found in East Germany, in the regions of Silesia, Prussia, and Pomerania, where the name is thought to have originated. The personal name Gaczko could be found in Breslau in 1328; it is therefore likely that the surname Gatzka emerged in this region shortly thereafter. The young Gatzka family was instrumental during this formative period, figuring prominently in the early history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of medieval German society.
