    Name Meaning

    Americanized form of German or Dutch Wagner or its German and Dutch variants Wagener and Wagenaar . Compare Waggener and Wagoner .

    Possibly also English: altered form of Waghorn . The surname Waggoner is very rare in Britain.

    History: A planter named John Waggener or Waggoner, who came to America c. 1670 and lived in Essex County, VA, is said to have been born in Colchester, Essex (England). No documentary source for this origin is given and an English origin is difficult to establish. The nearest similar English surname is Wagner 2, a very rare Norfolk name, originating in the 14th-century. In 17th-century Kent a number of families named Waghorn alias Wagon were occasionally also known as Waggoner (through false association with that word). Direct derivation from the English word wag(g)on is not possible, since it was borrowed into English only in the 16th century from Dutch, and wag(g)oner is an early Modern English coinage.
