==There was an extended family ZWILLINGER (meaning = twins) out of Vienna in
the 17th-19th centuries that also went withe the Hebrew form of the name,
TEOMIM. They were connected to all the prominent families of the era,
especially the FRANK/FRAENKELs.

==CAUTION: The above information is firm in my memory but I found no
reference to ZWILLINGER in the EncycJud when I checked there.

==You can find some genealogica information on the name by googling.
