    Name Meaning

    German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): occupational name for a tiler, from an agent derivative of Middle High German ziegel ‘roof tile’ (Old High German ziagal, from Latin tegula), German Ziegel. In the Middle Ages the term came to denote bricks as well as tiles, and so the name Ziegler may have also denoted a brickmaker or bricklayer (compare 2 below). This surname is also found in France (Alsace and Lorraine), Denmark, Poland, Czechia, and Hungary. Compare Zeagler , Zeigler , and Zigler .In some cases also a Germanized form of Slovenian Cigler or of its variant Ciglar ‘brickmaker’, cognates of 1 above.History: The surname Ziegler was probably first brought to North America in the early 18th century by Michael Ziegler from Germany, who settled in what is now Montgomery County, PA. The town of Zieglerville, PA, is named after him. Michael Ziegler was Lutheran, but converted to the Mennonite faith. Today the name Ziegler is also found among the Brethrens.
