The Krick surname comes from the Middle High German word "krieger," meaning " warrior," or "soldier;" and as such it was an occupational name for a mercenary soldier. However, some instances of this name are no doubt derived from the Middle High German word "kriege," which means "obstinate" or "cantankerous." In this case, Krick would have originally been a nickname, which in turn became a hereditary surname when surnames first began to be used.

Krick Early Origins



The surname Krick was first found in Silesia, where the family rose to prominence early in the mediaeval era. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation. Individual bearers of this name first mentioned in ancient chronicles include Johann Criec (Chrieger) who lived around 1260.
