The surname Zacher
I know it's definitely German, as I can trace my roots back to Germany .. I'm just not sure exactly what it means. Do you think it has anything to do with the first name Zachary?

Yes, a version of Zachary if Jean Tosti's explanation is accepted."Zacher Porté en Alsace-Lorraine, c'est un hypocoristique du prénom biblique Zacharie .."The inhabitants of Alsace and Lorraine have German surnames more often than not. However, we have to cross our fingers that Zacher is not a spelling that bows to French pronunciation, as there is another German surname, Sacher.
