The surname Stiger is a local surname; to be more precise, it is a topographic name, derived from a physical feature of the local geography. The specific derivation of the name Stiger is from the word "steig," which means "narrow, steep path." This makes sense considering that the family name originated in the Alps in Switzerland.

Stiger Early Origins



The surname Stiger was first found in the ancient city and canton of Berne, Switzerland, where the name could be considered to make a great early contribution to the feudal society which significantly affected the early development of Europe. The name, which held the baronial title since 1553, became prominent in local affairs. They branched into many houses which played important roles in the regional conflicts, each political group striving to maintain power and status in an ever changing territorial profile.
