Weingartner Early Origins



The surname Weingartner was first found in Austria, where the name Weingartner became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In their later history, bearers of the name became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family. The origin of the name Weingartner is somewhat uncertain. It most likely comes from the German words "wein," meaning "wine" and "garten," meaning "enclosure," therefore referring to a vineyard, but it is impossible to know whether the name was given to its first bearer because he worked at a vineyard, owned one, or merely lived near one.
