Possible origin of Tingen surname
Posted by: Terry Date: September 15, 2000 at 11:50:28
  of 93

The word parts "tingen" and "tiengen" are used as suffixes to village names in Germany, Norway and Holland just as 'burg, 'borough, 'ton, and 'ville are used in the U.S. The "t" is silent and the "i" and "e" are both pronounced as a short "i" in English. It was explained to me by a German physician.
