    Name Meaning

    Americanized form of German Zug , a name of ultimately Swiss German origin (see Zaugg ). Compare Sook .

    Americanized form of Jewish, Belorussian, and Ukrainian Zhuk ‘beetle (scarab)’, and probably also of its Polish cognate Żuk (see Zuk ).

    History: This (see 1 above) is the name of a Swiss Mennonite and Amish family, originally spelled Zaugg , but in Germany altered to Zug before being brought to North America in the 18th century. The American Mennonites and Amish named Zook are descendants of one of the brothers Christian, Johannes, and Moritz Zug, who arrived in PA in 1742 from Germany and settled in Chester County, but there were also other immigrants from Germany bearing the name Zug. The ancestors of the three brothers came to Germany from Signau in the canton of Bern, Switzerland. The name Zook is today also found among the Brethrens and Quakers.
