Finch Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, deriving from the Olde English pre 7th Century "fink" the finch bird, and has two possible interpretations. Firstly, it may be a metonymic occupational name for a breeder of finches or for one who caught finches and sold them as songsters. Job-descriptive surnames originally denoted the actual occupation of the namebearer and later became hereditary. The finch is a songbird, noted or his bright plumage, so it may also have originated as a nickname for a colourful person or one with a beautiful singing voice.
