Surname meaning for "Outlaw"
English: nickname from Middle English outlawe ‘outlaw’ (from Old Norse útlagi). (When a sentence of outlawry was passed on someone in the Middle Ages it meant that they no longer had the protection of the law.) According to Reaney and Wilson this was also occasionally used as a personal name; they cite the example of someone called Hutlage.
