Our Story

Wicht Coat of Arms

Although the Wicht name is an old and respected one, it had a humble beginning. First referred to in the 9th century, the surname Wicht appears to be characteristic in origin. In old High German a ‘Wiht’ meant a creature or a thing, whereas in modern German ‘Wicht’ is a cognate, meaning ‘small person’, ‘dwarf’. And also, unfortunately, ‘unpleasant person’. J. R. R. Tolkein, in his Lord of the Rings trilogy, named the little wraiths that lived in his forests the Barrow-Wichts. Spectral creatures similar to the Barrow-Wichts have even found their way into computer games such as the ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ Wights. However, since there is no point in being too finicky about metaphors, I prefer ‘one who was mischievous.’ More agreeably, during the eighties German television featured a couple of impish characters similar to those seen on Sesame Street that were known as the Munich Wichts (der München Wichts).

Wicht Coat of Arms as described in Rietstaps Armorial General “De sa. A trios demi-fleurs-de-lis d’or, 2 et 1, la premiere et la troisieme et la troisieme defaillamtes a sen., la deuxieme a dextra.” (Black; three gold half fleurs-de-lis placed two over one; the first and third the left half; the second missing the right half). Above the shield and helmet is the crest that is described as: “A gold fleur-de-lis between two silver ostrich feathers.”

Johan Wicht.
