Weidinger Coat of Arms / Weidinger Family Crest

The associated coat of arms for this name are recorded in J.B Rietstaps Armorial General. Illustrated by V & H.V Rolland's. This Monumental work took 23 years to complete and 85,000 coats of Arms are included in this work. The surname of WEIDINGER is of German origin, a locational name, one who came from Weiden (the meadow) the name of many places in Germany. It was also a name given to one who hunted game, a huntsman. When meat in the Middle Ages could not be kept well throughout the winter months, an important source of meat came through the game killed by the hunter, whose work was both a necessity and a pastime for the ruling classes. The British particularly were famed for their hunting dogs, and one gentleman Gaston de Foix, in France, was said to have had sixteen hundred hounds in his kennels, and six hundred horses in the stables. Favourite quarries of the nobility were the stag and the wild boar. From Germany there are many family names which denote the huntsman. The name was originally derived from the Old German name WIDA and is also spelt WEIDEMAN, WEIDE, WEIDLER, WEIDNER and WIEMANN. Local names find their origins in the villages, towns and areas where people were born, or from the land they owned. In the Middle Ages, a man was identified by his place of birth and almost every city, town and village existing in medieval times has originated one or more family names. Anyone leaving his birthplace would be known to new friends and neighbours by the name of his former residence, his birthplace, or the land he owned. A notable member of the name is Christine WEIDINGER, born on the 31st March, 1946, in Springville, NY. Her career as an opera singer began at the Metropolitan Opera, Stuttgart (1972-76); Stuttgart and Bielefield Opera, West Germany, 1981; Guest artist, La Scala, State Opera, Vienna, Barcelona, Venice, Bologna, West Berlin and others. She was honoured with First Prize, Metropolitan Opera Auditions in 1972. The lion depicted in the arms is the noblest of all wild beasts which is made to be the emblem of strength and valour, and is on that account the most frequently borne in Coat-Armour.
