Date of Birth: 7 February, 1978

Ashton Kutcher is an American actor, model, producer, and investor. He is famous for his role on the television series That ’70s Show. Ashton is married to actress Mila Kunis, with whom he has two children.

Ashton’s father is of Bohemian (Czech) descent. Ashton’s mother is of half Irish, one quarter German (including Swiss-German), and one quarter Bohemian (Czech), ancestry.

Ashton’s paternal grandfather was Earl F. Kutcher (the son of Michael John Kutcher and Alice Beth Sedlacek). Michael was born in Iowa, the son of Czech parents, Jan “John” Kučera and Anna Lenoč/Lenoch. The surname “Kucera” was later changed to “Kutcher”. Alice was also born in Iowa, the daughter of František “Frank” Sedláček and Anna Novotny, who were also Czech.

Ashton’s paternal grandmother was Adeline Mary Fisher (the daughter of Frank Fisher and Frances “Fannie” Drtina). Adeline was also of Bohemian (Czech) descent. Frank was the son of Joseph Fisher and Anne Drtina.

Ashton’s maternal grandfather was Vincent Raymond Finnegan (the son of John Edward Finnegan, Sr. and Ellen Lenaghan). Vincent was born in Keokuk County, Iowa. John was from Lisnagore, County Monaghan, Ireland, the son of Michael Finnegan and Anne Mary Maguire. Ellen was also Irish, born in Lisnagore, Killeevan, Newbliss, County Monaghan, the daughter of Terence Lenaghan and Bridget Connolly.

Ashton’s maternal grandmother was Rose Marie Koenighain (the daughter of Donald Jacob Koenighain and Leona Alice Kutcher). Donald’s parents, Mathias Koenighain and Ida Mae Brent/Brant, were both of German descent. Their families had lived in the United States (including specifically Pennsylvania) for many generations, and some of their ancestry was Swiss-German. Leona was the daughter of Czech parents, Michael John Kutcher and Alice Beth Sedlacek.

Ashton’s paternal grandfather, Earl F. Kutcher, was the brother of Ashton’s maternal great-grandmother, Leona Alice Kutcher. Thus, Ashton’s parents are first cousins, once removed.

The informations are completely wrong the name’s kutcher, catcher, cacher and ketcher are uncommon and for the most part nonexistent in the U.K. the name kutcher is Americanized from the german name kutscher what means “Carter” kutcher’s great-grandparents were Germans from sudetenland (bohemia) the lagest ancestry groups in Iowa 1.German 35,7% 2.Irish 13.5% 3.English 9,2% 4.Norwegian 5,7%

nnnnn November 26, 2012 at 12:00 pm

His father is Bohemian, and Bohemian isn’t German.
The word “Kutscher” is used in slavic languages, too

nnnnn November 26, 2012 at 11:50 pm

Exactly: “Kutschera” or “Kutscherova” for women –
usual name in Bohemia and the whole Czehia

nnnnn November 26, 2012 at 11:59 pm

Sudeten and Bohemia are two different provinces.
I wonder, that such ignorant comment has 16 “likes”
You may be obsessed of some celebritiy, but you
may not define his heritage.

Kutcher is an English name?, i thought it was German or East European.

Kutcher = Czech word for curly hair

Nora August 9, 2011 at 12:41 pm

i’m not sure but i think he stated in a german Tv-show (“Wetten, dass…?”) that he had czech ancestors…

eddie May 25, 2011 at 12:22 pm

elelelel April 16, 2011 at 1:58 pm

I too have seen him on an interview (maybe a year ago?) saying he was Native American. I believe it was a late night talk show.

It was on the David Letterman Show a few years ago while talking about how ironic it was owning an Italian restaurant while being Irish and Native American

They know, but this whole site is nothing but a schnizzfest and schnapps.

tereza June 11, 2010 at 2:51 am

kutcher… means house in croatian, take that in mind

lhmfrlan July 8, 2010 at 10:41 am

no it does not

Rifka May 31, 2010 at 3:23 pm

i think that aston looks like he might have some german in him.

ethnic January 11, 2010 at 12:40 pm

Tian Id like to see an interview of him saying that. Same with Demi and Richard Dean Anderson.


tian January 9, 2010 at 9:55 am

I have seen Ashton Kutcher HIMSELF saying that he has native american ancestry. I think it was on “punk’d”, or something else on MTV. Anyone else remember that? I’m 100% sure. He doesn’t look fully white to me. His wife Demi is also said to have some native or mexican, she is from new mexico and her name is “Demetria”. Another one I read has Mohawk ancestry is Richard Dean Anderson, “MacGyver”. :) It was on wikipedia but someone erased it!

Lola January 16, 2011 at 5:13 pm

Demi has Native ancestry, it’s “official”. Ashton’s old nose didn’t look that white, and yeah, he doesn’t look totally white.

Anonymous March 13, 2011 at 9:20 pm

You can see Amerindian or Bohemian ancestry in his physical appearance, such as the broad face, broad shoulders and other traits.

ethnic October 4, 2009 at 6:00 pm

Unknown, quite a few sites say that he has Native American ancestry but they dont provide a good source.


unknown October 3, 2009 at 10:37 pm

I didn’t know Ashton Kutcher has native american heritage.
