The distinguished surname Lipschitz is of several possible origins, all of which can be traced back to a common root. The name is derived from the Slavic "lipa," meaning "linden tree" or "lime tree." The name may relate to a number of different place names: "Liebeschitz," the name of a town in Bohemia, "Leipzig," the name of a famous German city, or "Leobschutz," the name of a town in Upper Silesia.

Lipschitz Early Origins



The surname Lipschitz was first found in Bohemia, where the town of Liebeschitz is located. It was a common practice of the time to refer to a new resident of a city by the name of his hometown; thus, it is likely that the progenitor of the name was a native of this town (or, alternatively, of Leipzig or Leobschutz) who had settled in another city. The young Lipschitz family was played a major role in the early history of this region, and was instrumental in the development of medieval society.
