This name is thought to be somehow derived from the Old German word "Geiß," which means "goat."

Early Origins of the Geister family


The surname Geister was first found in Switzerland, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.
