    Name Meaning

    English (north-West Midlands, Lancashire, Yorkshire, and Norfolk): nickname from Middle English (Old French) pie ‘magpie’, which could be given to someone who wore black and white clothing, had grey-streaked dark hair, or had a loud, chattering voice and impertinent behaviour, or was cunning or sly. The uncomplimentary senses derive from the bird's behavior and are recorded uses of the word in Middle English and early Modern English.

    English: occasionally perhaps a topographic or habitational name referring to a house or inn named Pie ‘magpie’. There were two London taverns so named, but whether these gave rise to a hereditary surname is not known. Surnames derived from house and inn signs are rare in English.

    English (of Norman origin): nickname from Anglo-Norman French and Middle English pie ‘merciful, compassionate, kind’, a variant of Old French, Anglo-Norman French piu, peu; see Pew (2).
