However, as the population increased and travelers set out on their journeys, it became necessary for people to adopt a second name to identify themselves. Jewish hereditary surnames were adopted from a variety of different sources. The name Glickselig is a Jewish Ashkenazic ornamental name. Numerous Jewish surnames are ornamental surnames, which are names that have an ornamental value and are not necessarily related to the localities, occupations, nicknames or given names of the first person who used the name.

The surname Glickselig is taken from the Yiddish word glik, which means luck. The surname Glickselig may also be a metronymic surname, which means that it was originally derived from the given name of the bearers mother. In the Middle Ages, the name Gluckel was a common Yiddish name for women.
