Siefen

The German word "Siefen" describes deeply indented moist valleys, of which there are many in the Seven Mountains. It is quite possible that they have even given it its name, because originally it was perhaps "Siefengebirge", so the mountains (Gebirge) with a many "Siefen", and only later became "Siebengebirge" that is Seven Mountains (sieben = seven).
