Soundex Code S265, Metaphone Code SKRN NameX of namethesaurus.com provides 21 surnames when Sieggreen entered: -Siegreen, Seigreen, Seagreen, Sieggren, Sieggruen, Seggren, Siegren, Seggeren, Siegruen, Seigren, Siegrun, Segren, Seggern, Sagreno, Seegren, Seagren, Zeggeren, Seagrene, Seagrenn, Shesgreen, Siegruhn
Sieggreen is the accepted/correct Anglicized (English) Spelling. Sieggrün is probably the correct German spelling. I find no other variation in German Phonebooks today. Translates as victory-green. I recall now that my old Lutheran pastor Koke told me that. I thought he was making it up.
I have also seen: I've seen it spelled Seigruhn, Seaggreen, Seagreen, Seagrun, Seiggreen, Seiggruen, Seigruen, Sieggruen, Sieggrun, Siegreen, Siegruen, Siegrun. Most of the time, it's not just a horrible mispelling. Most of the time. :) Soundex Code = S265
