    Name Meaning

    English (Norfolk and Suffolk): from the Middle English personal name Hogge, a rhyming pet form of Roger . In The Canterbury Tales, Chaucer's cook, ‘highte Hogge of Ware’, is invoked ‘Now tell on, Roger …’. Since Middle English spellings of the personal name are often impossible to distinguish from the nickname Hog(ge) ‘hog’, some early examples may be variants of Hogg .
