Family name origins & meanings

  • German (Münch) and French (Alsace) : see Munch.
  • Friedrich Münch (Muench), pastor and humanist, was born in Niedergründen, Hesse, in 1799. In 1833, after being involved in the failed revolution of 1832, he fled Germany for America, where he became one of the founders of MO. Largely as a result of his personal popularity and rhetorical skills, MO did not intervene in the Civil War on the side of the South.
