Skaggs Name Meaning

English: probably a variant of Skegg, which Reaney and Wilson describe as a nickname from Old Norse skegg ‘beard’; curiously, though, the modern surname occurs chiefly in Hertfordshire, with very little evidence of it in the north, where it might be expected to be concentrated.
