EtymologyEdit

Fudge is an English surname chiefly found in the county of Somerset.[1][2] It is derived from a pet form of the English surname surname Fulcher.[1][2] The surname Fulcher derives from the Germanic male given name Fulcher/Fulchar, which means either "the people's army," from the Old German elements folk, "people", and heri/hari, "army," or "lord of the people," from folk and herr, "lord."[3][2]
