Origins Available: English, German


The lasher surname is thought to have derived from the Slavic word "litsch," which meant "wild;" as such, it may have originally been a nickname for a wild or unruly person. The surname many also have evolved from any of several places, such as Lisch in Holstein; or Lischau in East Prussia.

lasher Early Origins



The surname lasher was first found in Austria, where the name became noted for its many branches within the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was enrolled by the princes of the region. In their later history the family became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential name.
