Bischoff Family CrestThe German surname Bischoff is derived from the Middle High German term bischof, Middle Low German bischop meaning “bishop,” probably applied as a nickname for someone with a pompous manner or as a metonymic occupational name for someone in the service of a bishop. The name is frequently anglicized as Bishop in the United States. The first recorded references to the name date to the late 13th and early 14th Centuries, Berchtoldus Episcopus of Oberweiler, Germany, in 1296, and Haintz der Pischoffer of Tiefenbach, Germany, in 1396.
