The roots of the German surname Reisig lie in the southern region of Bavaria, where the name first emerged almost a millennium ago. It is a place name, connected to the many villages and towns called Reisingen in Bavaria; during the Middle Ages, it was common to identify someone with his area of residence, and so it is likely that the original bearers of the surname Reisig hailed from the various towns of Reisingen, and passed the name down to their descendants. Alternatively, the name may also be derived from the German word "Reisig," meaning "brushwood"; in this case, the name was probably originally borne by someone living near shrubbery.
