The roots of the German surname Ice can be found in the northern region of Schleswig-Holstein. The name is derived from the personal name "Aigo," which itself derives from the Middle High German word "Ecke," meaning "sharp sword blade." It is also possible that Ice is derived from "Ico," a personal name whose origins are thought to be Frisian, a language spoken in northern Germany and the Netherlands.
