The roots of the German surname Schweickhardt can be traced back to the former duchy of Swabia, now known as Baden-Wuerttemberg, where the name first emerged. The name is derived from the Lower Saxony personal name "swindger," which referred to a "skillful spear fighter."

Schweickhardt Early Origins



The surname Schweickhardt was first found in the foothills of the northern Swiss mountains, in the town of Konstanz, where Heinrich Swigger, the earliest recorded bearer of the name, was living in 1255.
