Origin and popularity of the name ORGILL


Orgill : English (Midlands): nickname from Middle English Old French orgueil ‘pride’ (compare Pride) or sometimes perhaps a post-medieval shortening of Orgiles from the adjective orguilus ‘proud’. The French word may have been reinforced by the synonymous Middle English orgel (Old English orgol orgel).
