The roots of the distinguished surname Speichert 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.

Speichert Early Origins



The surname Speichert was first found in the duchy of Swabia, where it first emerged. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Konrad Speicher, who was living in Konstanz in 1388. The young Speichert family was instrumental during this early period, playing a crucial role in the development of medieval Swabian society.
