Renger History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Renger surname in England is thought to have arisen from two distinct sources.

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.
