Anguish Name Meaning

English: Reaney suggests this is a variant of Angus, citing two late examples from Bardsley: Margaret Anguisshe (1530), Erl of Anguyshe (1563). However, the surname is not found in Scotland (in the 1881 British census it occurs predominantly in East Anglia). It is likely that it is a nickname from Anglo-Norman French anguisse, from Old French angoisse ‘anger’, ‘violence’, cognate with French Anguise.
