Breitengüßbach is a community in the Upper Franconian district of Bamberg. It was first mentioned as Gusibach and as belonging to the royal court at Hallstadt in an Imperial document issued between 812 and 830.
As to the name’s origin, there is no agreement. The Old High German word guza could refer to Gießbach, but since the neighbouring community of Hohengüßbach does not lie on a brook , the name might also have come from the names Gosbert or Götz. The name in its current form crops up only in 1750, and only in the mid-19th century did it gain legal legitimacy.
