Hilger Early Origins



The surname Hilger was first found in Silesia, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. From the 13th century on the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation. Hilliker is in fact the Silesian and Saxonian variation of the word "Hildeger," which was an old German word meaning "spear." Adam Hildiger lived in Liegnitz (Silesia) in 1453, and Hans Hilliger lived in Dresden in 1412.
