The surname Mix is likely patronymic in origin, derived from the personal name of the father of the original bearer. In this case, Mix comes from a short form of Mikusch, which in turn comes from the Slavic personal name Mikolaj. The surname Mix's association with western Germany and the lands that were once Silesia and Lusatia, now part of Poland, explains it Slavic origin.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Micksch, Micka, Micke, Mick, Mix, Mickusch, Mickan, Mickat, Mika, Mikulas, Mukula, Mikes, Mikulasek, Micka, Miska, Misek and many more.
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.

Early mentions of the name Mix in records include Mikusch in Breslau in 1346, Mikusch Schoppe in Niess in 1414, and Niclas Mickisch in Görlitz in 1490.
