Meaning & History

Denoted a person from the town of Geising in Germany, which in turn got it's name from the Geisingberg mountain. The Geisingberg most likely got it's name from the Germanic geut or the Early New High German geußen, both meaning "to pour", and the German word Berg meaning "mountain". Therefor the name of the Geisingberg has been interpreted to mean "mountain that is poured over (with rainwater)".
