Geiger Family Name

Where does the Geiger family name come from?

Geiger is a German occupational surname that evolved in the region known as the Rhineland. Germans at first used only one name, but population growth and increased travel in medieval times caused confusion between people of the same name, forcing the people to adopt Hereditary Surnames. These names often identified people by the kind of work they did. Geiger is a name for a musician or a person who played the violin. The name Geiger is derived from the Old German word gigaere, which means violinist or fiddle player.
