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, Teschnir 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 Teschnir as a patronymic name.
