Origin and popularity of the name FELLOWS

Origin

Fellows : English: patronymic from Fellow from Middle English felau(e) ‘partner co-worker companion’ (late Old English fēolaga from Old Norse félagi which is composed of fé ‘fee money’ + legja ‘to lay place put’). In Middle English the term was used in the general sense of a companion or comrade and the surname thus probably denoted a (fellow) member of a trade guild. Compare Fear 1.
