The name Rash was derived from one of several place names in the German empire, such as Rasch near Nuremberg or Raschau in Saxony. The surname most likely emerged independently in several different kingdoms before it began to branch to still more regions.

Rash Early Origins



The surname Rash was first found in Pomerania, where the name could be considered to have made a great early contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of modern Europe. Chronicles first mention Johann Rasche of Stralsund, Pomerania, in 1277, Ruel Rascher of Frankfurt in 1300, and Cunrath Rasch of Allgae, Pomerania in 1361. The name became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the tribal and national conflicts at a time when groups sought power and status in an ever changing territorial profile.
