Name Meaning

English: patronymic from Fellow, from Middle English felagh, felaw late Old English fēolaga ‘partner’, ‘shareholder’ (Old Norse félagi, from ‘fee’, ‘money’ + legja to lay down). In Middle English the term was used in the general sense of a companion or comrade, and the surname thus probably denoted a (fellow) member of a trade guild. Compare Fear 1.
