An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2017


The distinguished German surname Junk is derived from the Middle High German word "juncherre," meaning "a young noble, not yet knighted." This term was often applied to a young man serving at court who would soon be knighted, and it is likely that the term evolved from nickname to surname, and was then passed down along a family line.

Junk Early Origins



The surname Junk was first found in various regions of Germany, and several branches emerged independently during the Middle Ages. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Burchardt Junker, listed in the Furstenbergisches Urkundenbuch in 1295. The young Junk family was instrumental during this early period, playing an important role in the development of medieval society.
