The Dugger surname comes from the German term for a duck or diving bird (from du(c)ken ‘to dive or duck’). It is thought to have been a nickname for someone thought to resemble the duck, but in some instances may have been an occupational name for someone whose trade involved the handling of ducks.

Dugger Early Origins



The surname Dugger was first found in Westphalia, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families in the western region. From the 13th century onwards the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
