About the Wagner surname

This particular branch of the Wagner surname was created at Ellis Island in 1902 when the Vigodner (sp?) family came through, escaping a Pogram in Russia. The family story goes that the intake officer could not spell our family name and so changed it to the simpler form of Wagner.


Balázs Déri's opinion :

Some of the many different Wagner families may descend from Wahagn ( Wa-Hak-Gen ) king of Nuri in Armenia succeeding Tigran / Dikran ( Di-Keran ) from about 521 until 494 b.c.,likely ancestor of genhaki - as well as of attiginongwahak ( attik-gen-nin-onga-wahak ) - and of kerandi tribes in the Pampa respectively.

He might have been a great-grandson of Pharnawaz ( Pahar-Nawa-Az ) ruling until about 666 whose name in the aryan language shows he first or only ruled in the region of mountain of the Nawa-Azteca peoples called in the Byble Az-Te-Wa-ya-Na. As it was and is in Pakaraima ( Pakal-Raima ) - and also Pahar-a-Hima - mountains it is clear to me he is identical with its king Pakal that is Paullu Raimi that is king A-Wa'e-Shawa-Haya , son-in-law of Pa-Dewa-Ha from A-Ra-Yemma-Ha ,who might have thus issued lupaka aimara tribe too,and was called by nawatls by a nickname To-Tepeu' , which is the same as welsh Guo-Tepauc ,meaning Our Mountain and referring to the Mountain the Holy City with its golden walls once stood.

The language of Armenia spoken until today both in Asia and in America comes namely from the levite Az-a-Wa-Na'a son of Ash-Amer-Gawa .

The kings son was also A-Wa-yak-Ha-Nan-Na ,another waikha ,who might have reigned in Haik and might hence be identical with Pharnawaz's successor Patchuich ,who were chased out by Babylonian daksheas and mixtecas from the Holy Land to Eurasia .

Jews and christians read Tsiyyon,Ye'oshiyahu,Pedayah,Rumah,Zina' and Shimei .
