The distinguished surname Edinger is of German origin. The name is derived from "Edingen," the name of several towns in Germany, and means "one who came from Edingen."

Edinger Early Origins



The surname Edinger was first found in cities surrounding the towns of Edingen. It is likely that the name first emerged in South Germany, in the regions of Swabia and Bavaria, where the Upper German suffix "-er" was most frequently used. The various branches of the Edinger family were instrumental during this early period, each playing a major role in the development of the medieval society of its particular region.
