Speicher History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The roots of the distinguished surname Speicher lie in the former duchy of Swabia, where the name is believed to have first emerged. The name has two possible origins. Firstly, it may be derived from the Middle High German "spicher," meaning "granary"; in this instance, the name would have been originally borne by a corn grinder. Alternatively, the name may be derived from "Spiecher," a place name borne by towns in both West Germany and the Swiss Alps. In this case, the name would have been originally borne by someone who hailed from one of these towns.
