Greggs Family CrestThe Scottish surname Greggs is of patronymic origin meaning son of, or descendant of Gregory, Gregg being a medieval pet form of Gregory. The personal name Gregory is a derivative of the Greek wordgregorein meaning “to be awake, or to be watchful.” However, the Latin form, Gregorius, came to be associated by folk etymology with grex, gregis,meaning “flock, or herd,”under the influence of the Christian image of the good shepherd. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Walter Greg, Charter witness, which was dated circa 1214 - 1226, in the "Charters of the Earldom of Morton", Scotland.
