Bavaria, Germany is the original homeland of the Reincke family. Reincke is a patronymic name, a type of surname that derived from the given name of the father of the original bearer. Reincke was derived from the Old Germanic personal name Raginhari, which is composed of the Old German elements ragin, which means counsel, and hard, which means hardy.

Reincke Early Origins



The surname Reincke was first found in Bavaria, where the name became noted for its many branches within the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied and enrolled by the princes of the region. Chronicles first mention Reinerus Reynberti of Rostolk around 1280. The Latin "Renerus" also became "Reinher" from which "Reinhard" was formed. In their later history the Reiners became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.

Thousands of German settlers came to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries.
