Hoghedge - > hedgehog - > hedge + hog [1]

In uppercrust families in the UK, the first part of the surname was of the male who married a female of higher status (the second part of surname). The offspring would inherit the double surname and, after that, their offspring. What is speculation on my part is whether these double surnames sometimes morphed together and lost letters over time. There are Hoggs in the Potter world. (Vaudree (talk) 07:29, November 16, 2015 (UTC))
