The roots of the distinguished German surname Emigh lie in the kingdom of Bavaria. The name is derived from the Old Germanic name Emmerich or one of its variants, such as Emrich, Emery, Irmin, or Ermin, and signifies "son of Emmerich."

Early Origins of the Emigh family


The surname Emigh was first found in the city of Wurzburg, where the name first emerged. The earliest known bearer of the name was Emicho or Embricho, the bishop of Wurzburg in 1140. The young Emigh family was instrumental during these early times, playing a major role in the development of medieval Bavarian society.
