Name Meaning

English (Midlands): nickname from Middle English, Old French orgueil ‘pride’ (compare Pride ) or sometimes perhaps a post-medieval shortening of Orgiles, from the adjective orguilus ‘proud’. The French word may have been reinforced by the synonymous Middle English orgel (Old English orgol, orgel).
