Zeng Early Origins



The surname Zeng was first found in Saxony, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation. Chronicles first mention Jacob Zengerlin from the Allgaeu region of southern Bavaria in 1250. In Old German the name meant "lively" and "spritely," or more literally, "a biting, sharp taste."
