The name Latsha was originally spelt Latschar, and can be traced back to Peter Joseph Latschar, who was born in Latterbach, Switzerland, the son of Hans Heinrich Latschar and Anna Maria. Nick’s grandfather George also had English and German ancestry, with roots in Rhineland-Palatinate and Bavaria, Germany.
