The distinguished surname Jurgen is a patronymic surname created from a personal name, and meaning "son of George." The name comes ultimately from the Greek words "ge," meaning "earth," or "soil," and "ergein," meaning "to work or till," together meaning "farmer." Jurgen was used as a first name throughout Europe during the Middle Ages, it's popularity in part due to the legendary dragon-slaying fame of St. George.
