SCOGGIN Family History

This most unusual name is of Old Scandinavian origin, and is one of the patronymic forms of the surname Scog(g)in, itself a diminutive of Scoggor Skogg, which represents a rare survival of the Old Norse and Old Danish byname "Skeggi, Skoggi", meaning "the bearded one". The surname is found mainly in those areas of Britain that were invaded and subsequently settled by Scandinavian peoples in the 8th and 9th Centuries; the east coast, northern and north western counties. There are a number of modern forms of the name, ranging from Scog(g)an, Scog(g)in and Skog(g)in to the patronymics, often with an excrescent final "g", Scog(g)in(g)s, Skog(g)in(g)s and Scog(g)ans.
