The distinguished and ancient German surname Uhrick 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 South Germany, Switzerland, and Austria 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.

The surname Uhrick was first found in South Germany, where this variation of the name is thought to have emerged. The earliest known bearer of the name was Conrad Urrici, who was a citizen of Strasbourg in 1498. The young Uhrick family was instrumental during this formative period, playing a major role in the early history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of medieval Swabian culture.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Uhrig, Urich, Uhrich, Urig, Urick, Uhrick and others.
