    Name Meaning

    English, German, Danish, and Swedish: topographic name for someone who lived by a birch tree or in a birch wood, from an ancient Germanic word meaning ‘birch’ (Old English birce, byrce ‘birch’, Middle High German birche, Old Danish birk). In some cases the German and English name may be derived from any of the places called with this word, such as Birch in Aargau (see Birke ) or Birch in Essex. In Swedish, the name is in many instances ornamental.
