Bundschuh Name Meaning
German: from Middle High German buntschuoch, a term denoting the type of shoe tied with thongs that was worn by peasants in the Middle Ages. This was the emblem on the banner of the peasants involved in the revolt of 1525, and presumably the surname could have arisen as a nickname for someone involved in the insurrection.
