Gleich Early Origins



The surname Gleich was first found in Bohemia, where since ancient times the Glick family made significant contributions to the advancement of the district's society. Being prominent in social affairs, the name Glick was closely associated with the turbulent events of the Medieval period and therefore frequently formed alliances with other families within the region.
