Runge Family History

Runge Name Meaning
German: from Middle High German runge ‘staff’, ‘stick’ (Old High German runga). The precise sense of the surname is not clear, but the vocabulary word was used in particular of the support rung on the side of a (ladder) wagon; thus it is possibly a metonymic occupational name for a wheelwright.
