Lickteig Name Meaning
apparently a jocular nickname for a greedy person or a baker, from Low German licken ‘to lick’ + teig ‘dough’, like Lickefett ‘lick the fat’, a jocular name for a cook. Alternatively, it may be an altered form of Leichteig, topographic name from Middle High German laich ‘light’, ‘clear’ + teig, variant of teich ‘pond’.
