The Strauch surname is derived from the Old High German "strub, " equivalent to the Latin "strobilus," meaning "unkempt." As such, it was probably originally a nickname for someone who appeared scruffy-haired. Nickname surnames came from eke-names, or added names, that described their initial bearer through reference to a physical characteristic or other attribute.

Strauch Early Origins



The surname Strauch was first found in the southern provinces of mediaeval Germany, where the name Straub was closely identified in this period with the feudal society that would eventually shape the course of European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches in Southern Bavaria, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs.
