The roots of the distinguished German surname Pflüger lie with the Middle High German word "pfluoc," meaning "plow;" and as such, it was thought to have originally been an occupational name for a plowman.

Early Origins of the Pflüger family


The surname Pflüger was first found in Bavaria, where the name Pfluger was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
