The Renger surname in England is thought to have arisen from two distinct sources. It evolved from the Norman personal name Reinger, or Rainger, which is composed of the Germanic elements "ragin," meaning "advice," and "ger," meaning a "spear." It also evolved from Old English "hringanas," meaning "a ring" and from the Middle English "ringen," meaning "to ring," an occupational name for a maker of rings, or perhaps for a bell ringer.

Renger Early Origins



The surname Renger was first found in Nottinghamshire, where they held a family seat in ancient times.
