Name Meaning

English (Kent): nickname from an unrecorded Middle English fag, perhaps a side-form of Middle English fagge (Old English facg), which is attested only as a name for a species of flat fish but possibly had a general sense ‘(someone or something) disproportionately broad or wide’, and which may survive in 19th-century northern English dialect fadge ‘a short, thickset person’.
