The German family Sigman originally made their home in Swabia, the modern region of Baden-Wurttemberg. The name means "son of Sieg," which is a diminutive of several personal names derived from the Old High German word "Sigu," meaning "victory," such as Siegfried, Siefmunt, and Siegbert.

Sigman Early Origins



The surname Sigman was first found in Hopferstadt, Franconia, where Conrad Sigeman, the earliest recorded bearer of the name, was living in 1383. The young Sigman family was prominent during these early times, playing an important role in the development of medieval Swabian society.
