Due Name Meaning

North German (Düe): from the Germanic personal name Dudo, which is of uncertain derivation. In some cases it is said to be a pet form of the compound name Liudolf (composed of Old Saxon liud ‘people’, ‘tribe’ + wolf ‘wolf’); in other cases it may be a derivative of Germanic theud ‘people’, ‘race’. Danish: from due ‘pigeon’, ‘dove’, applied as a metonymic occupational name for a dove keeper or as a nickname. In some cases, perhaps an altered form of French Ledoux. Possibly a variant of Welsh Dewey.
