Prager Name Meaning
German, Czech (Práger), and Jewish (Ashkenazic): habitational name for someone from the city of Prague (Czech Praha, German Prag), the capital of what is now the Czech Republic. The name may also have been applied to someone who came from elsewhere in Bohemia, the name of a major city being preferred to a more precise local designation. It is possible that in some cases the Jewish name may derive from a place called Praga on the Vistula opposite Warsaw, the Yiddish name of which is Prage. German (Präger) and Jewish (Ashkenazic): see Praeger 1.
