Zeigler

Zeigler is a re-spelling of the German name Ziegler, which is an occupational name for a tiler.  It comes from the Middle High German ziegel 'roof tile"  (Old High German ziagal, from Latin tegula).  In the Middle Ages, the word was used to indicate bricks as well as tiles.  As a result, it may have referred to a brickmaker or bricklayer, as well as a tiler.  (Dictionary of American Family Names)
