Multiple Origins for the Surname Hager



The colorful history of Saxony provides a glimpse at the oldest origins of the Hager family. In the medieval era, the German lands were inhabited by a variety of Barbarian tribes. The ancient dukedom of Saxony derived its name from the Germanic tribe name the Saxons who inhabited the territory after the fall of the Roman Empire.

Hager Early Origins



The surname Hager was first found in Saxony-Weimar, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name Hager became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.
