Name Meaning

English: habitational name from a place in Wootton Fitzpaine, Dorset, Gupehegh in Middle English. This is named with the Old English personal name Guppa (a short form of Gūðbeorht ‘battle bright’) + (ge)hæg ‘enclosure’. The tropical fish denoted by this word was named in the 19th century in honor of R. J. L. Guppy , a clergyman in Trinidad who first presented specimens to the British Museum.
