Re: Lercher? Any Info?
in reply to a message by Marc
The basis of this name is, apparently, Lärche, a larch tree. So a locality noted for its larches.

There are two more possible derivations of LERCHER:
1. From "Lerche", lark (the singing bird), for a person that loves to sing.
2. From place-names like Lerch (Bavaria, Tyrol), Lercha (near Meißen), Lerchen (Bavaria), or Lerche (North Rhine-Westphalia)This is taken from: Rosa und Volker Kohlheim: Das große Vornamenlexikon, Duden-Verlag Mannheim 2003
