patronymic from Dodd ; ‘son of Dod(d) or Dud(d)’ from Middle English Dodd(e), Dudd(e), Old English Dodd(a), Dudd(a), + -son. Alternatively, the name may arise from a Middle English form of Old English Dodesunu, a compound personal name formed from the same elements as above and impossible to tell apart from the Middle English patronymic.
post-medieval variant of Dodgson with simplification of the medial dgs.
