Eagle Name Meaning

English (mainly East Anglia): nickname for a lordly, impressive, or sharp-eyed man, from Middle English egle ‘eagle’ (from Old French aigle, from Latin aquila). English (of Norman origin): habitational name from Laigle in Orne, France, the name of which ostensibly means ‘the eagle’, although it is possible that the recorded forms result from the operation of early folk etymology on some unknown original. Matilda de Aquila is recorded in 1129 as the widow of Robert Mowbray, Earl of Northumberland. Jewish: translation into English of Adler.
