The German surname Teschemacher is believed by etymologists to have formed independent from various sources. In some instances, the surname was of toponymic origin, from the place named Teschen in Schlesien and East Prussia. The surname was likely also derived from the German word "tasche," meaning "an overhang, angle and corner," and would have been originally born by someone living near such a geographic feature. Alternatively, Teschemacher was of occupational origin, from the German word "tasche" meaning "purse," and thus referring to a maker of purses. There was also a Slavic personal name Tesmar, which may have given rise to Teschemacher as a patronymic name.
