Meaning of this name is unknown.
Joachim Borggräfe says: To understand the meaning of the name you have to split it into two parts: Borg and Gräfe.- The first part stand in Germany for Burg = Castle. In the middle age the Burg has been the center of the city. That is why the word also represents the city itself. - The scond part describes an administrative function which is added to the task of the administrator: Mark-Graf, Gau- Graf. Land-Graf, Deich- Graf, Burg- Graf. As a Burg- Graf the admistrator had the power to manage the Burg/City on behalf of the trustor who has elected the administrator. In some Cities in Germany in which the Emperor has had his Castle, in which he lived when he was present in this city, the Burg-Graf had the administarative power to reign the city, as so long the Emperor was not present himself in the CiTy/Burg. That has happened very often, because in the middle age there has been no single capital in Germany, but the Emperor needs to travel from one city to another to rule the country: Aachen, Frankfurt, Nuremberg, Augsburg, Meran etc. In all of those cities you still find for example streets named Burggrafenstrasse. That could be the street in which the Burg-Graf lived. And the regional aerea aroung Meran is still named Burggrafenamt. Therefor the source of the name Borggräfe is the function one of the so named individuum has been given, because he had to reign the castle and the city, he was made responsible for.
