An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2017


The Raschke surname is derived from the name Rasch, from the Middle High German word "rasch" meaning "quick," or "hot-headed;" as such, it may have originally been a nickname for a quick or rash person.

Raschke Early Origins



The surname Raschke was first found in Silesia and Swedish Pomerania, where the name could be considered to have made a great contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of modern Europe. The name became prominent due to this family's extensive land-holdings in the regions of Brandenburg and Saxony. Here, they became active in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the political struggles for economic supremacy, in which each group sought power and status in a constantly evolving territorial profile.
