Name Meaning

German (Krüger) and Jewish (Ashkenazic):1. occupational name for a maker or seller of stoneware mugs and jugs, from an agent derivative of Middle High German kruoc ‘jug’, ‘pitcher’, German Krug. 2. occupational name from Krüger ‘innkeeper’, an agent derivative of Krug ‘inn’, ‘tavern’, from Middle Low German krūch, krōch (probably originally a different word from 1, with which it has subsequently fallen together).
