I'm afraid the Duden Lexikon fails here. All I could find, is WILT, a contraction of WILLHARDT.
There are several german surnames ending with -GEN, but my dictionary doesn't have a reverse index (this would take too much space) and the ones I could think of (Fremgen, Hergen) aren't in it. All I can imagine is a variant of -KEN, a deminutive suffix.
