The Heineke surname is derived from a Germanic personal (pre-surname) name "heim," which meant home. Cognates of the name are popular throughout Europe.

Heineke Early Origins



The surname Heineke was first found in Bavaria, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
