The ancient and distinguished surname Oesterreichare is derived from the Old High German words "ostar," meaning "eastern," and "rihhi," meaning "kingdom." Thus, the name is used to denote someone who came from an eastern region. Oesterreichare is also the German name for the Republic of Austria, and is therefore a common surname for Germans of Austrian ancestry.

Oesterreichare Early Origins



The surname Oesterreichare was first found in the eastern regions of Germany, where it is thought to have emerged. Due to the origins of the name, it is likely that several branches of the Oesterreichare family emerged in various parts of Germany. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Arnold de Oesterich, who was a town councillor and resident of the city of Stettin in the year 1136. The branches of the young Oesterreichare family were instrumental during this formative period, figuring prominently in Germany's early history and contributing greatly to the development of the medieval societies of their respective regions.
