Origins Available: French, German


Noble surnames, such as Vich, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Vich, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Bourgoine. In France, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Vich family originally lived in Vichy, in the province of Bourgoigne.

Vich Early Origins



The surname Vich was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France, where this renowned family has held a family seat since ancient times.
