It was a topographic name for someone who lived near a fork in a road or river, or the occupational name for a maker and seller of forks.The name was first recorded in West Flanders, a province in Belgium, originally Bruges. Within this province the notable towns are Bruges, the capital city, Ostend, Courtrai, Furnes, Thielt, Ypres and Roulers.
