The surname Sigmund was originally a German personal name, most commonly found under the form "Sigismund" in the Middle Ages. The name is derived from the German word "sieg," meaning "victory," and the Old High German word "munt," meaning "protection."

Sigmund Early Origins



The surname Sigmund was first found in various regions of Germany, where several different versions of the name emerged independently. For example, the variants "Simond" and "Simonds" were common in the Rhineland, and "Segemund" or "Seemund" were often found in the northern regions of Germany. Every branch of the Sigmund family was instrumental during these early times, each playing a major role in the development of the society of their particular region. The name was derived from a personal name composed of the elements "sigi" meaning "victory" and "mund" meaning "protection."
