BAGLIN Meanings and OriginsEdit
According to the ‘Baglin Blazon of Arms’, Baglin is a patronym “The Descendant of (old French, diminutive suffix ‘-in’ or ‘-an’) Baga”, an old personal name meaning “strife, battle”.
Baglin, originally German Boegl, can also mean Archer (Bowman). Research by Thomas J Baglin suggests that at some point the Boegl's from Germany split in two. One branch stayed with the Franks (German) and went to France via the Rhine while the other section went into France and on to Normandy via the Vikings and subsequently into England with the Norman Conquest of 1066, after which Baglin's settled in Gloucestershire and in due time some of them became landowners and farmers.
