Guggenheim Family History
Guggenheim Name Meaning
Jewish (western Ashkenazic): habitational name from Gugenheim in Alsace or less likely Jugenheim (earlier Guggenheim) near Bensheim (Hesse). In both cases the second element is from Old High German heim ‘homestead’ while the first is of obscure and disputed etymology.
