Name Meaning

English (mainly eastern and southern): from an agent derivative of Middle English pich ‘pitch’, hence an occupational name for a caulker, one who sealed the seams of ships or barrels with pitch.

Possibly from German Pitscher, from a short form of a personal name formed with Old High German bītan ‘to endure’, or bittan ‘to wish or ask for’, or from a variant of Pietsch .
