Stiegemann Coat of Arms / Stiegemann Family Crest

This surname STIEGEMAN was a German topographic name for someone who lived by a path running up a hillside, from an old German word STEIG (steep path or track).It was also a name for someone who lived by a plank bridge. The name has numerous variant spellings which include STAIGER, STEGNER, STEGEMANN, STEEG, STIEGER, TESTEEGEN and STEIGER. The first hereditary surnames on German soil are found in the second half of the 12th century, slightly later than in England and France. However, it was not until the 16th century that they became stabilized. The practice of adopting hereditary surnames began in the southern areas of Germany, and gradually spread northwards during the Middle Ages. A notable member of this name was Aaron Armin STEIGER, born on the 19th September, 1909. He was the Business Executive and President of Tel-A-Sign, Inc. Chicago and author of various articles in trade and advertising. He resided at Chicago, Illinois. Because of the close relationship between the English and German languages, some Germans are able to transform their names to the English form just by dropping a single letter. Many Germans have re-spelt their names in America. A great number of immigrants from Germany settled in Pennsylvania. After the start of the first World War, Germans in great numbers Anglicized their names in an effort to remove all doubt as to their patriotism. Afterwards some changed back, and then during World War II the problem became acute once more, and the changing started all over again, although not with as much intensity. German or Teutonic heraldry extended its sphere of influence over central Europe and spread into Scandinavia. It is most notable for its design and treatment of crests, most of which reflect the arms in the charge or tinctures (colours) or both, which is unknown in British heraldry. Teutonic Europe assembled many arms on a single shield, each bearing its corresponding crest on a helmet.
