Name Meaning

This relatively common and readily understood surname seems to have absorbed some early examples of less transparent surnames derived from the Germanic personal names mentioned at Faulks and Foulks .2 Irish: part translation of Gaelic Mac an tSionnaigh ‘son of the fox’ ( see Tinney ).3 Jewish (American): translation of the Ashkenazic Jewish surname Fuchs .
