Origin of the Name Yeager

The Yeager family history was found in the archives. The names Yeager, Yager, Jaeger and Jagger are usually of German origin, spreading throughout mainland Europe, onto England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland, and from their out to the new world of America, Canada, Australia and beyond. Yeager is a name of nickname origin, with earliest references to the main being recorded in Westphalia in Germany. Yeager is a name applied to a person who was known as a good hunter, from the word 'jage' meaning 'hunt'. Famous bearers of the name include 'The Fastest Man Alive' General Chuck Yeager, Of West Virginia, USA, who was the first pilot to break the sound barrier on October 14th, 1947.
The Yeager coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Yeager descendants.
