Ganger Name Meaning

English: from an agent derivative of Old English gangan ‘to walk’, hence possibly a nickname for someone with a peculiar gait; by the period of surname formation, however, the word had acquired the sense ‘go-between’ and it is likely that this meaning lies behind the surname in some instances. German (usually Gänger): variant of Gengler.
