Goering Family HistoryRecorded in many spelling forms including Gearing, Geering and sometimes Goring, (England), Gerin and Geron (France), Gering, Gehring, Gehringer, Goering, Gohring, (Germany), and many others, this is a Germanic and Anglo-Saxon surname, recorded in its different forms in most European countries. It derives from the pre 7th century personal name 'Gering', a derivative from the word 'gari or geri' meaning a spear, and '-ing' which generally means 'the people', or possibly 'the tribe', to give a literal translation of 'The spear people'.
