The roots of the German surname Swigger can be traced back to the former duchy of Swabia, now known as Baden-Wuerttemberg, where the name first emerged. The name means "son of Schwind," which is itself a diminutive of first names, such as Schweibold, Swindbercht, and Schweifer, which are derived from the Old High German "swind," meaning "strong."

Swigger Early Origins



The surname Swigger was first found in the foothills of the northern Swiss mountains, in the town of Konstanz, where Heinrich Swigger, the earliest recorded bearer of the name, was living in 1255.
