The distinguished Germany surname Streich has two distinct origins. Firstly, it is derived from the place name "Streek," a town located in Odenwald; in this instance, the name would have been initially borne by someone who hailed from this town. Alternatively, Streich is an occupational name, deriving from the Middle High German word "stricher," meaning "tester." In this instance, the name would have originally been used to designate someone in this occupation, eventually being passed down as a hereditary surname.

Streich Early Origins



The surname Streich was first found in Austria, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
