The German surname Taks is derived from the Old German word "dachs" or "dahs," meaning "badger." The name was probably given as a nickname to someone who resembled a badger in some way, perhaps with a streak of white in dark hair or with nocturnal habits. Taks was likely passed down as a surname to the descendants of a bearer of the nickname, perhaps as early as the twelfth century, when Germany first began to pass down hereditary surnames.
