The surname Bognar is a metonymic surname; it is derived from the principal object associated with the occupation of the original bearer. The name is derived from the German word bogaere, which means bow.

Bognar Early Origins



The surname Bognar was first found in Silesia, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society. Chronicles first mention Hensel der bogener of Liegnitz, Silesia, around 1368, and N. Bogener of Breslau in 1399.
