Multiple Origins for the Surname Jung


German


The ancestral home of the Jung family is in the German province of Bavaria. Jung is a German nickname surname. Such names came from eke-names, or added names, that described their initial bearer through reference to a physical characteristic or other attribute. Jung is a name for a young person or the junior member of a family or community, being derived from the German word "jung," which means "young."

Jung Early Origins



The surname Jung was first found in Bavaria, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation. The name "Jung" (English: Young) had the original meaning of "junior," an addition to a name which would reflect the bearer's status or age, as well as distinguish him or her from the father, or "senior."
