Question on Name Origin

Poster: RowenRhys@aol.com

Greetings Good Gentles All!

I have a query into the origins of the last name Mangold....I have seen it
multiple times of late (funny how that happens when you have never noticed
something before, isn't it?) and wonder if it is in some way related to the
Old English concept of wergild meaning "man-price."  If so, then why?  What
did a last name of Mangold signify about the bearer?
