The roots of the distinguished German surname Fuggerr lie in the kingdom of Bavaria. The name is derived from the Middle High German word "fucker," meaning "sheep shears."

Early Origins of the Fuggerr family


The surname Fuggerr was first found in farmlands throughout Germany. The name's meaning suggests that the name was first borne by a sheep farmer or a wool merchant from Bavaria during the late 13th century, when hereditary surnames came into common use in Germany. The young Fuggerr family was instrumental during these early periods, playing a major role in the development of medieval Bavarian society.
