The distinguished and ancient German surname Uhlich is derived from the old Germanic personal name "Ulrich," which is itself derived from the Old High German "uodal," meaning "homeland," and the Germanic "rik," meaning "king." This personal name has been popular in Germany since the Middle Ages due to the fame of St. Ulrich, the bishop of Augsburg, Bavaria, who twice led the defense of his city against Hungarian attacks in the 10th century.

Uhlich Early Origins



The surname Uhlich was first found in East Germany, where this variation of the name is thought to have emerged. The first known bearer of the surname was Ulich, who lived in Czeschau, Brandenburg in 1381. The Uhlich family established itself in this region during the Middle Ages and quickly grew prominent, figuring prominently in the early history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of mediaeval East German society.
