The surname Radkie is a local surname; it is derived from the place name Radeck, a castle in Oppel, in Silesia. While it is generally regarded that the name was from this area, the first record of the name was in Switzerland. The derivation from the place name Radeck makes this a habitation surname; that is, a surname based upon an already existing place name. The other type of local name is topographic names, based upon a physical feature of the local geography, such as a forest, or a river, and so on.

Early Origins of the Radkie family


The surname Radkie was first found in Switzerland, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation. Chronicles first mention Heinrich von Radekke of Upper- Austria in 1256, and Hans Radecker of Eger in Bohemia around 1395.
