Pigeon Name Meaning
French: from pigeon ‘pigeon’ (Old French pijon ‘young bird’), hence a metonymic occupational name for a hunter of wood pigeons, or a nickname for a foolish or gullible person, since the birds are easily taken. In some cases, an altered form of French PetitJean. English: variant spelling of Pidgeon.
