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."

Gungerich Early Origins



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