Jagger Name Meaning
English (West Yorkshire): occupational name from Middle English jagger ‘carter’, ‘peddler’, an agent derivative of Middle English jag ‘pack’, ‘load’ (of unknown origin). All or most present-day bearers of this surname are probably members of a single family, which originally came from Staniland in the parish of Halifax. During the 16th century it spread through the Calder valley, and from there to other parts of England.
