Where did the German Mix family come from? What is the German Mix family crest and coat of arms? When did the Mix family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Mix family history?

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.
