The German name Palmquist arose from some distinct sources. In some instances, it evolved from the medieval personal name Palmatius, borne by a saint who died in 286. The name also derives from the Middle High German word "palme," or "balme," denoting a pussy willow, the tree that was traditionally used to provide the branches for Palm Sunday processions. In this instance, the name was likely originally used by someone who lived among such trees.

Palmquist Early Origins



The surname Palmq Uist was first found in Bavaria, where the name Palm was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
