The name Duringer, which is a local surname, reveals that the original bearer of the name once lived, held land, or was born in this beautiful region of Thuringia. In the Holy Roman Empire, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and, after the 12th century, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. In addition, when coupled with the German preposition von, which means from or of, local names can indicate that the bearer of the name was an aristocrat. However, in modern times, the von is frequently dropped from the surname. The Duringer family originally lived in Thuringia, which located between Hessen and Lower Saxony in the west and Saxony in the east. This regional name refers to a person who originated in Thuringia and migrated to another German or European state.

Duringer Early Origins



The surname Duringer was first found in Thuringia, where the family became noted for its many branches within the region, many houses acquiring a status and influence which rivaled that of the landed aristocracy. In their later history some branches were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they distinguished themselves through their contributions to the social, political, and economic developments of the nation. Individual bearers of the name first mentioned in ancient chronicles include Dietrich von Duering of Bremen in 1140, Duringus filius Dietmari of Styria in 1240, and Duringbertus of Erfurt, in 1288.
