The Weninger surname is thought to have originally been a nickname which became a surname. It derives from the Middle High German word "wenic," which means small or weak.

Weninger Early Origins



The surname Weninger was first found in Bavaria, where the name Wening was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power. Bearers of the name were also found in Silesia, Saxony and Thuringia.
