Place names ending with –igen, -ingen (in Latin –ense, in French –ens, in Italian –engo) generally derivate from a Germanic settler, bearing a Werl name. As in Valais there are no other Werl-ingen / Verl-ens places it could be possible that all Valais Werlen originate from Zenwerligen. See also The name's origin
