Name Meaning

Some characteristic forenames: German Kurt, Erwin, Hans, Horst, Klaus, Otto, Ewald, Lothar, Wilhelm.

German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): topographic name or metonymic occupational name for someone who owned or lived by an orchard or was employed in one, from Middle High German boumgarte ‘orchard’ (a compound of boum ‘tree’ + garte ‘enclosure’), German Baumgarten. There are also several villages named with this word, and so in some cases the surname may have originated as a habitational name from one of these. As a Jewish name, it is mainly artificial.
