Name Meaning

English (Bedfordshire): nickname for someone disfigured by a lump or hump, from a diminutive of Old French bugne ‘swelling’, ‘protuberance’. The term bugnon was also applied to a kind of puffed-up fruit tart, and so the surname may also have been a metonymic occupational name for a baker of these.
