Origins Available: English, German


The family name emerged in the old duchy of Saxony, which existed from the 9th to the 12th centuries. A common form of surname found in Lower Saxony are those that are derived from nicknames. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The name Lunger is derived from the Old German word "lang," which means "long," and it was a nickname for a very tall person.

Lunger Early Origins



The surname Lunger was first found in Lueneburg, in the Dukedom of Brunswick, where this family contributed to the local society. The family became an integral part of that turbulent region as they emerged to form alliances with other families within the feudal system.
