Name Meaning

1 English: nickname from the animal, Middle English, Old English fox. It may have denoted a cunning individual or been given to someone with red hair or for some other anecdotal reason. 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 .
