Pinniger in Latin means flighted, feathered – as in Roman standard-bearer.  So one might presume that we came over leading the Roman cohorts and were driven west by the Saxon and Norman invaders.

Following the Latin nomenclatue, a beautiful Carnary Rockfish whose fins present a ‘feathered” or “flighted” appearance is called the Pinniger Sabaste .

Try this one on for size:  BENA; a bear; or slayer of men in battle.  ING: a son, as in Inge means daughter.  GAR: a strong spear.  Possibly BENINGAR: The son of the slayer of men with strong spear.  I.E., an olden Teutonic warrior name.  Evidently there are numerous versions of this name and the family must be numbered in the millions by now.
