The place name, from which the Boggis family take their surname arrived in Scotland with the Viking settlers. The first to use Boggis as a name no doubt 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.
