Family name origins & meanings

  • Polish and Jewish (eastern Ashkenazic) : from Polish jagoda ‘berry’, hence perhaps a nickname for someone thought to resemble a berry, a topographic name for someone who lived by berry-producing plants, a metonymic occupational name for someone who gathered and sold berries, or, among Jews, an ornamental name.
