The distinguished surname Gungerich is of German origin. It is derived from the old Germanic personal name "Gundericus," which is itself derived from the Middle High German "gome," meaning "man," and the Old High German "rihhi," meaning "powerful." The surname indicates "son of Gingerich."

The surname Gungerich was first found in Germany, where the surname was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area.
