In Reply to: meaning of Pogue by Georgiana Kotarski of 864

Originally synonomous with Pollock which means "a pool in a field" and was the name given to the original land granted to Peter (I think) in Scotland near what is now known as Dumfries....from memory about the year 1160. The original owner was Peter de Pollock...meaning Peter from the place where there was a pool in the field. It is also coincidentally gaelic for "kiss" but this gaelic word is not connected with the origins of the surname Pogue
