The roots of the ancient and distinguished German surname Tigner lie in the northern region of Schleswig-Holstein. The name is probably derived from the Low German word "teget," meaning "tenth," or in this case "tithe," the ten percent tax paid by peasants to the Church or to a feudal landlord. It is likely that the progenitor of the name was one who collected this tax from the peasants.

The surname Tigner was first found in Schleswig-Holstein, where the surname is thought to have emerged. The young Tigner family was instrumental during this period, playing a major role in the early history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of medieval society in Schleswig-Holstein.
