Reply to: the surname BRAGG by M.SAGANI

I found Bragi and Brage, both attibuted to a Scandinavian derivative meaning 'poet' ...

I'd suspect Bragg is one of a number of English names that came from the Vikings or Normans who settled in England. The name, of couse, now has connotations of a boaster ...which seems possibly associated with a poet.
