Origins of surname
Found spelt Laugé in the Morbihan department of south Brittany, this French surname is believed to derive from the Germanic Leodgari (leod = people + gari = spear).
First found in the Trinity baptism registers in the early 17th century, this family name was largely confined to that parish, and then St Helier in later years.
