Last name origins & meanings:
- Swiss German: probably an altered form of Swiss
Büchi. However, in The Mennonite Encyclopedia Bitsche
(or Bitschi) is proposed as the origin. See also
- English: variant of Peach.
- Swiss Surnames shows numerous Büchis (mainly in Zürich
and Toggenburg) and several variants (Bücheli,
Büchele, Bücheler, Büchler, etc.),
whereas Bitsch(e) is listed four times and was apparently taken
to Switzerland from Germany at the end of the 19th and beginning of
the 20th centuries. Peachey is most common in Mifflin Co., PA; other
variants appear in various communities.
