Bunce Family History
Bunce Name Meaning
English: unexplained. Perhaps a respelling of Bunts. Probably an altered spelling of Swiss German Bunz or Bünz, from Alemannic bunz ‘little barrel’, hence a nickname for a short fat man, or of German Banz, or from pet form of an Old High German personal name Bun(n)o, of unexplained etymology.
