An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


In the Middle Ages, Viking immigrants settled the shores of Scotland and named many places. The Bogg name was then created from one of these place names. They lived in a place noted for the presence of a ridge that formed a boundary between two distinct areas. It comes from a variant of the word boak or balk, of the same meaning. While historians generally agree upon the aforementioned topographical derivation, most believe that this name actually came from the area called Boak in the parish of Kirkholm.

Bogg Early Origins



The surname Bogg was first found in Berwickshire an ancient county of Scotland, presently part of the Scottish Borders Council Area, located in the eastern part of the Borders Region of Scotland, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

In their new home, Scots found land and opportunity, and some even fought for their new freedom in the American War of Independence.
