The Schick surname is derived from the Middle High German word "schick" meaning "proper, fitting, skillfull." It was most likely originally a nickname for a proper and courteous person, which then became a surname in the era that surnames first began to be used.

Schick Early Origins



The surname Schick was first found in the Rhine valley. Early records include Albrecht Schiko, a citizen of Koeln (Cologne) in the year 1150, as well as Herman Schicke, who was a knight near Frankfurt in 1244.
