Name Meaning

from Old French fiche, perhaps ‘pointed implement for fixing or transfixing something or someone’ (such as a lance?), a derivative of Old French fichier ‘to fix, fasten, pin on, stick into, pierce’. Compare Modern French fiche ‘peg, pin’. Reaney remarks that ‘as Hugh Malet is said to have abandoned for a time his nickname ‘little hammer’ in favor of Fichet (see Mallet ), fiche must have been used of a pointed weapon, a spear or lance, and Fitch and Fitchett (see Fitchett ) of a spearman or a knight famous for his exploits with the lance’. Use of Fiche as a personal name is possibly implied by diminutive personal name forms such as Fechet (see Fitchett ) and Fechel, attested in Fechel de Fercalahn, 1225–50. The latter is perhaps the source of the now extinct English surname Fetchell.occasionally a variant of Fitz .English:
