Name Meaning

English and Scottish (of French origin): habitational name from La Tranche in Poitou, so named from the Old French topographical term trenche, a derivative of the verb trenchier ‘to cut’, which denoted both a ditch and a track cut through a forest. The term is also found in Middle English, and in some cases the surname could be of topographic origin or from minor place, such as The Trench in Kent, named with this word.
