Name Meaning

English: topographic name for someone who lived by a hill or tumulus, Old English beorg, a cognate of Old High German berg ‘hill’, ‘mountain’ ( see Berg ). This name has become confused with derivatives of Old English burh ‘fort’ ( see Burke ). Reaney suggests a further derivation from Old English būr ‘bower’ + hūs ‘house’.
