The surname Bettinger was first found in Germany. And, while a specific early location of this name could not be found, names ending in the suffix "-er," generally come from the Westphalia region, while names ending in "-gen" are usually from the Rhineland. By the late Middle Ages, bearers of the name were established in Luxemburg, where bearers of Bettingen were granted coats of arms. The variation of this name Bettin, was anciently found in Solothurn.
