Gier Family HistoryThis interesting and long-established surname belongs to that sizeable group of early European surnames that were gradually created from the habitual use of nicknames. These nicknames were originally given with reference to a variety of personal characteristics, such as physical attributes or peculiarities, and mental and moral characteristics. The derivation, in this instance, is from the Middle English "ge(a)ry", fickle, changeable, passionate, a derivative of "gere", "fit of passion, wild or changeful mood".
