Surname meaning for "Haggard"
English: nickname from Middle English, Old French hagard ‘wild’, ‘untamed’. This word was adopted into Middle English as a technical term in falconry to denote a hawk that had been captured and trained when already fully grown, rather than being reared in captivity; the surname may have developed as a metonymic occupational name for a falconer.
