Origins Available: French, Scottish


The surname Legue is a patronymic name; it is derived from the given name Adigari, a Germanic personal name. It means "noble spear." Such militaristic names were quite popular in the Middle Ages, which was an era of almost permanent warfare in Europe. The formulation of the surname started as L'ardigari, which was shortened and corrupted over time to the current version of the name.

Legue Early Origins



The surname Legue was first found in Dauphiny (French: Dauphiné or Dauphiné Viennois), a former province in southeastern France, where this impressive family held a family seat since ancient times.
