I think it's not specially chassidish... it's for boys born on pessach, mostly...

I know a last name Pesach and first. The one I know is a family name not named after a holiday .
Klausenberg if that counts. the other family I know is Gur.

Let me clarify, I’m asking how it was used historically, in there 1800’s.

My family is hailing from Ukraine, not far from Skvira and the name was used a lot through several generations, so I was wondering if it’s common in some chasidus.

I'm not chasidish and I know people named Pesach.

Rav Pesach Pruskin was a well known Livish Gadol . ( Rav Moshe Feinstein was his Talmid)

Perhaps it was a common Russian Ukrainian name but not to specific to Chasidim

Perhaps one ancestor was born on Pessach and named pessach for that reason, and then the descendents were named after him...

I know two "Pessach" who are first cousins (about 60 years old)... I suppose it's after their grandfather...

It's not exclusively a chassidish name. The name Pesach in a family tree is not necessarily an indication of chassidish background. I think it is exclusively used in Ashkenaz circles, though I'll be glad to stand corrected if a Sephardic ima tells us there are Pesach's in her family.

Recently there was an article written in Mishpacha by a Pesach Stein as a memorial tribute to R Chaim Dov Keller. He’s a Telzer- definitely not chassidish.

This name runs in the Chassam Sofer's family tree as well.

There is no name that is strictly chassidish. If anything I'd associate Pesach with more Litvish background than Chassidish.

You're looking in the wrong place.
Alexander Beider books might help you. Facebook groups for Jewish genealogy. Avotaynu or Jewish Gen. Not imamother.
