Etymology of the name STURGESS.
Meaning of the baby name STURGESS.

  

STURGESS.  English.  A variant form of Anglo-Saxon Thurgis (q.v.), itself from Old Norse Thórgísl (q.v.), meaning "Thor's hostage."  Also spelled Sturgis.

    Sometimes, where the original name began with th, it has been altered by the employment instead of st, as Sturgess for Thurgisói.e., Thorgisl, the hostage of Thor.  But, on the other hand, the s initial letter has more frequently fallen away... (Family Names and Their Story, Baring-Gould, 1910).
