Gudgeon Name Meaning

English: from Middle English gojon, gogen, Old French gougon ‘gudgeon’ (the fish) (Latin gobio, genitive gobionis), applied as a nickname or perhaps as a metonymic occupational name for a seller of these fish. The gudgeon is considered easy to catch, so the nickname may have denoted a gullible person.
