    Name Meaning

    English (West Yorkshire and Derbyshire):

    from the Old Norse (Old Danish) personal name Wraghi, of uncertain origin and meaning.

    variant of Ragge, from Middle English ragge ‘scrap of cloth, flap (of a garment), rag’, perhaps for someone who wore tattered clothing or clothes ornamented with strips of fabric. Alternatively, ragge might have been a shortened form of Middle English ragged ‘tattered, shaggy’. Perhaps occasionally a habitational name from Rag Field in Wonersh (Surrey). The placename probably derives from Middle English ragge ‘moss, lichen’ (Old English ragge, a side-form of ragu).
