The surname Micksch is likely patronymic in origin, derived from the personal name of the father of the original bearer. In this case, Micksch comes from a short form of Mikusch, which in turn comes from the Slavic personal name Mikolaj. The surname Micksch's association with western Germany and the lands that were once Silesia and Lusatia, now part of Poland, explains it Slavic origin.

Micksch Early Origins



The surname Micksch was first found in Silesia, Lusatia, and Saxony, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs. Early mentions of the name Micksch in records include Mikusch in Breslau in 1346, Mikusch Schoppe in Niess in 1414, and Niclas Mickisch in Görlitz in 1490.
