English: probably a habitational name from an unidentified place, possibly in the Newcastle area of northeastern England, where the surname is now most concentrated. Perhaps also an altered spelling of Swiss German Richle and Richli, from a short form of a Germanic personal name based on ric, rih ‘power(ful)’ (see Reich).
