Hegemann History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The German surname Hegemann, like many surnames, was taken from some geographical feature near the dwelling place of its first bearer. Coming from the Old Norse "haga," or some local variation of the word, the name means "one who lives near a hedged or fenced enclosure."

Early Origins of the Hegemann family

The surname Hegemann was first found in Bavaria, where the name was closely identified in early medieval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs. The earliest known bearer of the name was Walther vom Hage, recorded in 1345.
