The Nitschke surname comes from a popular Silesian short form of the personal name Nikolaus.

Nitschke Early Origins



The surname Nitschke was first found in Bohemia, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.
