Swanger Name Meaning
Perhaps an altered form of German Schwanger, from Swano, a short form of a Germanic compound personal name formed with swan ‘swan’, or directly from this word. Perhaps an Americanized form of German Zwanger, from Middle High German zwange ‘pliers’, hence an occupational name for a maker or user of pliers, or maybe a nickname for someone with very strong hands.
