Name Meaning

English (Kent): of uncertain origin. Reaney suggests that it may be a metonymic occupational name for a fish seller or a baker, from Middle English fagge, Old English facg, which denoted a kind of flatfish, and perhaps also a flat loaf. Another Middle English word fagge apparently denoted a fault in the weave of a piece of cloth.
