The colorful history of the German region of Silesia provides the setting for oldest origins of the Kaerge family surname. The name Kaerge comes from the Middle High German word "karc," meaning "cunning," or "sly." As such, the surname was most likely originally a nickname which later became a surname.

Early Origins of the Kaerge family


The surname Kaerge was first found in Silesia, where this family made important contributions toward the development of this district from ancient times. Always prominent in social and political affairs, the family formed alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.
