The Butzke surname is German and originates from the historically prominent Kingdom of Prussia (German: Königreich Preußen).
All of us have a surname (family name) that we inherited from our parents, traditionally from our fathers. Many of us know very little about where these family names come from and what they originally meant. Some family names can be associated with physical places and locations while others can be indicative of a particular trade or profession. My research into the origins of the Butzke surname has taken me on a fascinating journey into history.
