The Ryngar 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.
