Origin of last name

PEGG : English (mainly Leicestershire):: 1: nickname from Middle English pegge ‘peg’ (from Middle Dutch of uncertain origin) probably metaphorical for someone small and thin or perhaps a metonymic occupational name for a maker or seller of wooden pegs or else a nickname for a person with a wooden leg.2: perhaps in some cases from a hypothetical Middle English personal name Pegg(e). This could represent the Old English male name Pæcga or Pecg or it could be an antecedent of early Modern English Peg as a rhyming form of Meg for Margaret (see Meggs).3: perhaps a variant of Pigg.
