Nungesser Name Meaning
apparently a variant spelling of Nonnengasse, from a street name meaning ‘nuns’ lane’. Possibly a variant of Gnugesser, a nickname for a big eater, from g(e)nug ‘enough’ + esser ‘eater’ (from essen ‘to eat’). Alternatively, it may be a habitational name for someone from Nunkas, a place in the Upper Palatinate.
