The German surname Sorg has two possible origins. The name may be of nickname origin, deriving from the German word "sorge" meaning "sorrow." Alternatively, it may be a habitation name, referring to the town of Sorge located in Saxony. A branch of the Sorg family may have sprung from a resident of this area.

Sorg Early Origins



The surname Sorg was first found in the city of Sorge, where it is believed that Heinrich Sorge, the earliest recorded bearer of the name, was living in 1296. The Sorg family was instrumental during this early period, playing an important role in the development of medieval society.
