such as Egs names emerged as early as the mid-9th century. These surnames were derived from the given name of the father of the first bearer of the name; Egs means "son of Eggert."
The surname Egs was first found in Schleswig-Holstein, 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. This name was quite common in the city of Hamburg.
