The roots of the German surname Lingen lie in the former royal duchy of Swabia, now the modern region of Baden-Wurttemburg. The surname is derived from the name of the town of Lingenfeld, located south of the city of Heidelberg. The name was most likely originally borne by someone who came from this village.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Lingenfelter, Lingenfelder, von Linggenfeld, Lingen, Lingg, Ling and many more.

First found in Lingenfeld, a small town located south of Heidelberg near the French border. It was common practice in the early Middle Ages to take on a surname derived from the name of one's city of origin, particularly when one was moving from that city to settle somewhere else; thus, the earliest bearers of the surname were probably former residents of Lingenfeld who had moved to another town.
