Kovach Early Origins



The surname Kovach was first found in East Prussia, where the name Kowalski was a royal house in what was originally Poland but passed through history from Prussia to Czechoslovakia and back to Polish. The name gained a reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society in Silesia. It later became more prominent as numerous branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some of which were located in other countries. Through the acquisition of these estates as well as their important contributions to society, the family successfully elevated their social status. The name originated as an occupational name for a blacksmith.
