  1. Schlecht

    Schlecht (from Old High German sleht "even", "direct" or "natural" (cognate with Old English sliht)) is a German surname belonging to the group of family names based on a personal characteristic, in this case derived from a nickname originally used for a straightforward person. Like the variant Schlicht it arose before the semantic change of s(ch)le(c)ht/s(ch)li(c)ht from the rather positiv "straight", "plain", "simple", "well" to present-day "bad", "evil", "wicked" in the 15th century and may also be habitational in origin, stemming from several small settlements with that name (from sleht in the sense "flat").
