Almost certainly from the Old Norse trygr, meaning "honest, trustworthy", used as a male given name. The only problem is that the -r ending should have disappeared by the time surnames were becoming hereditary. So Trigg and Triggs are English surnames known to be from this source, but it's just possible that Trigger has another origin.
