Wegner Family History

This ancient German-Dutch-Swiss surname is of occupational origins. It derives from the Olde High German word 'wagen', and as such was a metonymic for either a maker of horse drawn vehicles or possibly a transport contractor. Clearly being a 'wagener' was a position of considerable importance in medieval times, with no less than thirty seven coats of arms have been granted to nameholding families. The spelling variations are numerous, being delictual transposed by the many German 'languages'. The variations include Wagner, Wagnerin, Wegner, Wagen, Weagener, Wegener, Wahner, Wahnerr, and Wehner.
