Zagars History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The roots of the distinguished German surname Zagars lie in the northern region of Pomerania. The name is derived from "Zager," the name of a town located near Wollin on the coast of the Baltic Sea.

Early Origins of the Zagars family

The surname Zagars was first found in Pomerania, where it was first recorded. The earliest known bearer of the name was Johann Zager, who was living in Stralsund in 1287. It was a common practice of the time to refer to a new resident of a city by the name of his hometown; thus, it is likely that the progenitor of the name was a native of Zager who had settled in another town. The young Zagars family was instrumental during this early period, playing a major role in the development of medieval Pomeranian society.
