Origin of Seger, Meaning of Seger

Origin: Seibert has it's origins as a Germanic Patronymic name. It has 40 some-odd variations in spelling and pronunciation. It's original spelling came from two root words, 'siege' and 'beraht', meaning 'victorious & brilliant one, famous'. These two words combined, create the earliest common form of 'Siegbert'. Before World War I and during the Austrian Monarchy, it 'became' predominitely a 'Jewish' name, and for that reason was eventually avoided by non- Jews. It is often confused with the more common name of 'Siegfried', which means 'victory & peace'. Names such as these are cate- gorized as the 'victory' names, used to depict terms of battle or warfare.... Siegbert: Victory-Bright Siegfried: Victory-Peace Sigismund/Sigmond: Victory- Mountain These names are now commonly depicted as Seibert, Siefert, Simmonds, & Simon.... As a Jewish name, these are possibly descriptive of the tribe of Simeon(Shimon)... commonly the Jews used the 1st sylabble of a German name to depict the tribe they were thought to be from, in this case the Hebrew letter 'Shin'.
