A few years ago I visited some of my father's family in St. Gallen Switzerland, and found that the name probably came from a small town South East of Frankfurt, called Ehingen. It is close to the towns of Ulm and Zingen, and also not far from Rothenberg, which is an ancient walled town, that is now a well known tourist attraction.

While there, with a bit of assistance from the locals, we did a quick check, and there were no Ehingers living in Ehingen, but there were in Ulm, and Zingen, which is where my father's family came from.

My father migrated from Switzerland, to the US via Paris and Manitoba to Chicago, North Dakota, then to Washington State circa 1920.
