Re: Origin of name Frogge and Froedge?

I have read somewhere that the name Frogge originated in France and was pronounced "Fro-jay". When the Frogges cross the channel to England, the English pronounced it, based on its spelling, "Frog-ee." The Frogges eventually dropped the "e" because they did not like being called "Frog-ee." I've done a little research on the name Frogg because my husband has a great great grandmother who was born Martha Lela Frogg.
