Minchev (Минчев, heard Meen-cheff, transliterated in various ways: Minchev, Mintchew, Mintcheff, etc) is a very often family name in Bulgaria.

There is a personal male name Mina, very rare now, name day on November 11th, please see


In Bulgarian, Mincho (Минчо) is in fact a diminutive form for Mina, however it is preferred as a personal male name since Mina seems to be female in Bulgarian.

The patronym from Mincho is Minchev-Mincheff, a very often family name in Bulgaria. The female form is Mincheva.
