Baumgarten Name Meaning

German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): topographic or metonymic occupational name for someone who owned or lived by an orchard or was employed in one, from Middle High German boumgarte ‘orchard’ (a compound of boum ‘tree’ + garte ‘enclosure’), German Baumgarten. There are also several villages named with this word, and so in some cases the surname may have originated as a habitational name from one of these. As a Jewish name, it is mainly ornamental.
