i want to find a meaning of two surnames of german physicist:HEISENBERG and SCHRÖDINGER.
First, 'HEISENBERG' is surname ofWerner Heisenberg(1901–1976), who was awarded the Nobel Prize for the creation of quantum mechanics,
i already knew what 'BERG' means, that means hill or mountain,but i don't get it what 'HEISEN' means.
and 'SCHRÖDINGER'is surname of 'Erwin Schrödinger'(1887-1961)he was born in Austria, andalso known for "Schrödinger's cat".
and i was confused of meaning ofthat surname becauselooks like a Two surnames... 'SCHRÖDER'(occupational name of "tailor",or variant of SCHRÖTER,introduce next sentence)
or 'SCHRÖTER'(occupational surname,meaning "a carrier of wine or beer barrels") with 'DINGER'(occupational surname of "judge", "arbiter")
seem to be combined.
does anybody know whatthese surname's real meaningand respond this question, please?
