The surname Leischner was first found in Austria, where the Fleischmann family became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In its later history, the Fleischmann family became a power unto itself and was elevated to the ranks of nobility. The earliest known bearer of the name was Heinrich Lenke der fleischman, who lived in Eger in 1379.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Fleisch, Fleishauer, Fleischbein, Fleischer, Fleischhacker, Fleischmann, Fleischen, Fleischern, Fleishhaus, Fleischdorf, Flesch (North Germany) and many more.
