JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Origin of the surname BAUMGARTEN #general

Hello Genners

Does anybody know of any scientific resources to the origins of the
surname BAUMGARTEN? I am interested particularly it it's East European
version, pronounced in Yiddish "Boymagarten". When did it first apear
in East Europe and where? Was it an "invented name" like Appelbaum,
Rosenbaum. etc?

Thank you
Isak Gath, Haifa
