Origins Available: English, German


Following the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, the name Junge was first found in Britina. It was a name for a young or youthful person deriving from the Old French word jeune, which means young. A broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character.

Junge Early Origins



The surname Junge was first found in Cambridgeshire where they held a family seat as a very distinguished family in that county. The family are believed to be descended from an ancient, prominent Norman family who either accompanied Duke William of Normandy at Hastings or arrived soon after and settled in this shire. The name is believed to have been Le Jeune (the young) and the first mention of the name in tax rolls was Matilda Jun in 1273 in Cambridge.

Junge Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Junge are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Junge include June, Jung, Junge, Jevene, Le Jevene, Le Juen and many more.

The Great Migration



Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Junge, or a variant listed above:
