The surname Sagire is an occupational surname; that is, it is derived from the work of the original bearer. In this case it is derived from the occupation of carpenter or miller. The name is derived from the Old German word "sager," which means "sawyer," or a person who saws wood. Occupational names that were derived from the common trades of the medieval era transcended European cultural and linguistic boundaries.

Sagire Early Origins



The surname Sagire was first found in Pomerania, previously composed of the northern German provinces of Brandenburg, Prussia, and Mecklenburg, where the name could be considered to make a great early contribution to the feudal society. The name became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the tribal and national conflicts, each group seeking power and status in a constantly changing territorial profile. Chronicles first mention Johann Sager of Luebeck in 1307.
