JUDGE Family History

This unusual name is both English and Irish, although the origins are quite different. The English version derives from the Norman French 'juge', a word which did originally describe a Judge. However whether this was an occupational surname or a nickname for someone who had the (perceived) qualities of a judge, is unclear from the early recordings. Curiously the Irish 'Judge' surname holders also have a similar background, in that the development of the name is from the Gaelic 'Mac an Bhreitheamhnaigh' translating as the 'Son of the Judge'. A variation of the Gaelic is also found as the surname (Mac) Breheny or Brehany...
