Jäger

[yey-ger]
Jäger (singular der Jäger, plural die Jäger, , as in Yeager) is the German word for "hunter", and also a common German surname.

It is related to "die Jagd" (plural "die Jagden") for "the hunt", and "jagen" for "to hunt". In English it is often written with the ("double") plural Jägers, or as jaeger (pl. jaegers) or jager (pl. jagers) to reflect the original "ae" combination that was replaced in German by the umlaut ä, a letter which does not exist in the English alphabet.
