lodge

Last name origins & meanings:

  1. English: local name for someone who lived in a small cottage or temporary dwelling, Middle English logge (Old French loge, of Germanic origin). The term was used in particular of a cabin erected by masons working on the site of a particular construction project, such as a church or cathedral, and so it was probably in many cases equivalent to an occupational name for a mason. Reaney suggests that one early form, atte Logge, might sometimes have denoted the warden of a masons’ lodge.
  2. Henry Cabot Lodge (1850–1924), the influential U.S. senator from MA, was born in Boston, the only son of John Ellerton Lodge, a prosperous merchant and owner of swift clipper ships engaged in commerce with China, one of several Lodges who emigrated from England in the 18th and 19th centuries.
