Deeg Name Meaning

Possibly an Americanized spelling of French Digue, which Morlet suggests may be derived from a root dig- meaning ‘to sting’, hence ‘to quarrel’, and therefore a nickname for a quarrelsome, argumentative person. Americanized spelling of Hungarian Dég, from the old secular personal name Dég.
