Hi,
A lot of us have wondered about its origin. I don't think anyone has ever had a real theory on it. I know my husband's name evolved here in the US from Codner to Cardner. My Geiger line went from Gyger to Giger to Gieger to Geiger.

My Colliers are found on a Florida census as Coliere and Colyer.

My Murphys were Murfee, Murphee.

That is a good question, and none of us have figured it out.
Sydney
