    Name Meaning

    English: topographic name from Middle English loge, logge, lug(g)e (Old French loge) ‘hut, temporary shelter, workshop, occupational cottage (for a gamekeeper, bridge keeper, etc)’. It may have referred to a herdsman's hut and by extension to the cattle farm that was managed from it. Early examples of this surname in East Anglia and Wilts may alternatively have alluded to a forester's or gamekeeper's hut.
