Pye Name Meaning
English: from Middle English, Old French pie, pye ‘magpie’ (Latin pica), applied as a nickname for a talkative or thievish person. The modern English name of the bird, not found before the 17th century, is from the earlier dialect term maggot-pie, formed by the addition of Mag, Maggot, pet forms of the female personal name Margaret. Welsh: variant of Pugh.
