Multiple Origins for the Surname Henninger



The ancient and distinguished German surname Henninger is derived from "Henneke," a diminutive of the enormously popular given name Johannes. The Low German suffix -ing indicates "son of"; thus, the progenitor of the name was likely the son of someone who was known as Henneke.

Henninger Early Origins



The surname Henninger was first found in East Prussia, where the family came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as numerous branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some of which were located in other countries. Through the acquisition of these estates as well as their important contributions to society, the family successfully elevated their social status. The name was first found in Courland were they were raised to be cavaliers in 1566.
